Brewing organic, fair-trade, and shade-grown beans, Kona Coffee proves its commitment to a well-balanced environment, economy, and suntan. Java jewels are sourced from poverty-stricken areas around the world, but each batch of the house's bean juice is prepared with at least 30% Hawaiian-collected Kona beans to maintain their signature taste. Sip a classic cappuccino ($2.35–$3.15) to start your day on a foamy foot, or enjoy a kona mocha ($3.15–$3.90), mint mocha ($3.15–$3.90), or caramel-apple latte ($3.15–$3.90) for a midday sweet treat. Kona's spicy and refreshing chai frappe ($3.90–$4.45) provides a tasty cool-down alternative to climbing into a freezer on a hot summer day, and fresh-fruit smoothies ($4.75, for protein powder add $0.85) make it easy to reach fruit-that-doesn't-require-teeth quotas. Barista-made beverages range between $2 and $5, and brew-it-yourself beans generally sell for $7 to $8 for half a pound and $12 to $14 for a full pound. Coffee connoisseurs or wannabeans can use this Groupon toward a bag of 100% Kona Fancy beans ($40/lb.).

Modmarket's chic interior serves as an ideal stage for the mouthwatering performances of the restaurant's wholesome, seasonal culinary stars. The menu—which contains nutritional information for each dish—eases diners into their restorative repast with an array of salads, available in such verdant configurations as thai coconut, whose bed of greens teems with sweet potatoes, chicken, and peanut-mango dressing ($8.75). Many of the eatery's salad dressings contain no gluten, animal byproducts, or narwhal tears, and the from-scratch soup selection always includes at least one vegan option. The restaurant's pizzasmiths forge exotic, innovative creations, such as the pizza sporting fig, goat cheese, gorgonzola, arugula, and pepper ($8.50), and all pizzas are available with soy cheese and whole-grain or gluten-free crusts. Sandwiches, such as the chipotle steak ($8.50), come with a choice of vegan bread or gluten-free wrap and toast to toothsome crispness in a 600-degree brick oven.

If you were to trace the origin of one of Jamba Juice’s freshly squeezed juices, it wouldn’t take long before you ended up face to face with its most important supplier: Mother Nature. Whole fruits and vegetables from her gardens, groves, and orchards fill Jamba Juice's stores: kale, apples, pineapple, carrots, beets, and other produce. Although it’s serious about filling cups with wholesome, natural ingredients, the company is a little more playful when it comes to the palate.

Sure, there are classic juices on the juice menu. Purely Carrot, for instance, which is as elemental and straightforward as it sounds. But there’s also the Tropical Greens, which combines apple juice and pineapple with super greens and chia seeds. And there’s Kale Orange Power, loaded with kale, bananas, and orange juice—all of which are packed with a serious helping of vitamins and manganese. Regardless of which flavor you choose, each 12-ounce juice packs in at least 1.5 servings of fruits and veggies, making it a convenient way to restore energy and get nutrition on the go. The same commitment to simplifying healthy eating can be found throughout the Jamba Juice menu, from its Fruit and Veggie smoothies to its Artisan Flatbreads.

In addition to providing healthy options to customers, Jamba Juice sponsors Team Up for a Healthy America. The initiative is focused on improving childhood nutrition and fitness by encouraging fans to join the Team Up community of celebrities, athletes and other leaders committed to helping the nation stay fit—which you can do by visiting the main Jamba Juice website.

With over 500 stores serving the full freshly squeezed juice menu, Jamba Juice is the perfect way to blend in the good.

Three green leaves and a small, blooming bud rest upon the globe. It’s an appropriate logo for Wystone's World Teas, given that they carry more than 150 loose and whole-leaf teas from around the world. These are the ingredients the tea bar’s teatenders use to craft beverages ranging from Japanese green teas to tea-infused cocktails. Tea also spills over into the bar's menu of breakfast, lunch, and light-dinner fare, since many dishes––including breakfast burritos, paninis, and Greek pitzas––are accompanied by Kenyan tea-roasted red-bliss potatoes or tea-smoked chicken. The sweet notes of the beverage even flavor such desserts as the African Rooibos carrot cakes, which come topped with Caramel Rooibos–tea cream frosting.

Private and daily tea tastings give guests the chance to learn about the drink's preparation, origin, and three purest forms: dry leaf, infused leaf, and leaf that looks a little like Larry Bird. During these one-hour sessions, participants sip on five to seven different teas while snacking on chocolate, gelato, cheese, and fruit. Wystone also sells teapots and glassware in-store and online and gives back to the community by donating a portion of their profits to the local nonprofits they feature in their store on weekdays.

With its authentic British tearoom hospitality, refined quaintness, and hearty traditional British fare, The House of Windsor offers an elegant European-style light meal without having to jet across the pond. With this deal, tea-timers are seated at tables covered in lace cloths for a delightful full afternoon tea. Gather your friends and wax poetic over a gathering of six finger sandwiches, a selection of fresh fruit, and the agonizing choice of whether to nibble on trifle or petit four. Tea-sippers can also nosh on The House of Windsor's scones, made fresh on-site and complemented by a serving of jam and clotted cream. You'll also get a bottomless teapot, achieved through a complicated bending of the space-tea continuum. Although the House of Windsor's dining room brims with charm and class, diners can feel comfortable wearing jeans or shorts.
