The baristas at Nordaggio's Coffee have a passion for Arabica beans. Like sommeliers, they analyze the beans' characteristics before roasting them with vintage apparatus and brewing them into fragrant coffee or steamy lattes. Visitors to the café can choose from an array of blends, including chocolaty Espresso Divino, earthy Nox Atra, or Afroguatran, a blend of East African, Guatemalan, and Indonesian java.
At each Tropical Smoothie Cafe location, healthy choices abound with drinks composed of fresh fruit and snacks loaded with veggies and premium meats and cheeses. The café’s colorful repertoire of smoothies runs the gamut from creamy, dessert-based indulgent creations to light and refreshing low-fat fruit options or frosty drinks boosted with supplements. Strawberries, bananas, and peaches mingle with exotic açaí and goji berries to form mouthwatering concoctions designed to deliver health-boosting antioxidants, essential nutrients, and laser vision–inducing vitamins. Drinks pair with ciabatta and griddled flatbread during breakfast and lunch, as well as with made-to-order salads and a host of wraps and sandwiches.

Husband and wife team David and Jinny Enkey man the stations at The Mocha Café, where they rouse dormant sensory receptors with aromatic cups of java brewed with numu beans roasted in Oklahoma City. The independent coffeehouse’s lineup of creamy, flavored lattes and teas funnels down food-chutes alongside crisp salads, fresh pastries, and hand-dipped chocolate espresso beans. Visitors can enjoy their brews at tables adorned with candy-apple-red tablecloths or kick back on vintage couches and admire local artwork, listen to occasional live music, or play board games against neighbors to settle disputes over property lines.
