Red Poppy Coffee Co. brews up ambrosial coffee potions and feeds starving minds with selections from its lunch menu. While silently studying ancient Latin gossip mags, café-goers can sip a rich white-chocolate Lyrical latte ($3.09+) or gourmet coffee ($1.48+), or select a favorite leafwater from a variety of 40 tempting teas.
It’s Tuesday morning, which means the members of The Yogurt Experience’s staff are loading up the trailer with cups, waffle cones, drinks, and frozen yogurt for another day of cooling off the city. Once the trailer is stocked, it accelerates toward the North Austin Trailer Yard to nab a parking spot amid the 10,000-square-foot traffic jam of food trucks. Typically, the staff selects a few frozen-yogurt flavors to highlight each day, from thin-mint cookies to blueberry-acai tart to cheesecake made with no added sugars. They repeat this process every day except for Monday, returning their non-fat, low-fat, and sorbet treats to the storefront each night so no kiddie cones get arrested for breaking curfew.
The indoor-fun wonderland offers a safe environment for your small fry to burn off excess foie-gras calories while socializing with their contemporaries. Children can climb cozily through well-cushioned tunnelways, traverse the netted maze of mystery, or bound their way down one of many sloped, wavy, and swirling slides. In the interest of supervision and safety, all of Jungle Java's equipment is built to accommodate simultaneous play between parents and their children. To further ease parental minds, all surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected each day. In between familial play dates, adults can relax on a plush leather couch in the café, sipping on a freshly steamed latte or refueling with one of Jungle Java's healthy menu selections, such as wraps, yogurts, fruits, and more. Regardless of food preference or age, all guests must wear socks in the play areas.
Dairy mavens at Zero Degrees Ice Cream handcraft more than 40 ice-cream flavors daily, and then pepper their creamy depths with fresh chunks of fruit and chocolate morsels. Scoops splash across homemade waffle cones, and cakes and cupcakes beat out ice sculptures of The Thinker as eye-nabbing frozen centerpieces.
