Coffee & Treats in Kings Point

Project Mat? Bar is a caf? and shop devoted to one special variety of tea: yerba mate. A favorite in South America's Guaran? culture, the antioxidant-rich leaves are brewed throughout Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Southern Brazil. Fanatics praise its earthy taste, its bounty of vitamins (A, C, and E), and its minerals (calcium, magnesium, and potassium). And with two-thirds the caffeine of coffee, but none of java's dehydrating qualities, yerba mate is especially praised for the special brand of calm alertness it helps impart.

At Project Mat? Bar, sippers quaff the energizing elixir or take home the powder or leaves they need to brew their own. The shop culls its yerba mate sustainably, relying on trees, and tea from the branches' teapots, that grow in Brazil's town of Sao Martinho, Rio Grande do Sul. In addition to yerba mate, the shop offers organic blended teas and tea accessories. Sweet-toothed tea fiends can even munch Belgian chocolate infused with yerba mate. Since the drink is traditionally swigged from a gourd, Project Mat? Bar stocks plenty of etched, cured gourds for that purpose.

3 in 1 Juice's staff hand presses sweet, healthy elixirs to order from fresh fruits and veggies, sidestepping additives and preservatives in favor of largely organic ingredients. The menu's juices and smoothies ($4–$8) gush into glasses in a variety of flavors, such as 3 in 1's signature carrot, beet, and orange medley. Blenders or repurposed mini-golf windmills mix up peanut butter, banana, and soymilk in the icy peanut-butter smoothie, and swish together fresh sugar cane with watermelon or honeydew for melon cane pours. Arepas, Venezuelan unleavened-cornmeal patties ($4.75 each), carry exotic toppings such as shark meat and venezuelan cheese to bellies as diners relax around cozy tables and tropical plants or try to stave off scurvy by licking the lime walls.

More than just a simple dairy dispensary, Eco Yogurt Lounge pairs sweet treats with environmental stewardship in a space that’s more club than ice cream shack. More than 30 flavors of traditional frozen yogurt, including wild strawberry lemonade, peanut butter, and blueberry tart, play well with sugar-free, tart and agave-sweetened varieties, many of which also contain vitamin and protein boosts to replenish bodies with nutrients. Once patrons have selected their swirls, they can head over to a series of small alcoves, where a toppings bar with self-serve cookie, candy, and fruit pieces awaits sweet inspiration. Yogurt in hand, they can sit at one of the modern white benches or plush chairs as brilliant LED lights reflect a wall of color-changing waves across the room. In addition to placating sweet teeth, Eco Yogurt Lounge also allays consciences, supporting earth awareness by using recycled materials and donating a percentage of the proceeds to ecologically friendly organizations.

The aroma of slow-simmering caramel and chocolate wafts through Hoffman’s Chocolate’s Greenacres headquarters. To demystify its origins, the shop’s chocolatiers have outfitted their kitchen with observation windows, granting customers the chance to admire their delicate handiwork and holiday helper subcontractors. They meticulously lace European truffles with chocolate drizzles, and dunk cherries and pretzels in milk and dark chocolate. This devotion to small batches of handmade treats extends back to the 1970s, when founder Paul Hoffman began peddling treats out of his small Lake Worth chocolate shop. Over the decades, chocolatiers have expanded the bakery’s repertoire to include whimsical confections such as enormous fortune cookies and seasonal treats.

After their kids had grown into adults and moved out of the house, Jodi Gelfenbaum and her husband weren't just keen on relaxing. They were ready to begin a new leg of their journey together—one that involved a lot of buttercream. These days, the couple oversee Jodi's Cupcakes and More, where the little hand-held cakes appear each day in a variety of flavors. The chocolate campfire cupcake, for example, brings together a graham-cracker crust and a toasted marshmallow meringue. The snowball cupcake is available with either a white or chocolate cake crowned with coconut buttercream and topped with coconut shavings. Baked fresh daily, the cakes are available in both large and miniature sizes, and may be ordered individually, by the dozen, or in bigger batches for large meetings and science fair projects about what a whale eats.

In a span of five years, students start and finish high school, presidents get elected and re-elected, and babies grow big enough to finally warrant having a name. For the cake makers at Kate?s Cheesecakes, though, five years was how long it took to hatch the perfect recipe. Now, the shop?s team unleashes its onslaught of sweets upon Boca Raton, bringing a taste of New York to Southern Florida in the process with appetizing cakes and half-moon cookies. However, tasty as its treats are, the shop never cuts corners when it comes to quality: it crafts everything from natural ingredients, including pure cane sugar, fresh heavy cream, and full-fat cream cheese.
