A team of local best friends opened this cozy neighborhood spot to serve up artisanal java and tasty baked treats. Cups of joe brewed from locally roasted beans fuel early morning think tanks ($1.50–$3). Placate sophisticated palates while prodding sluggish brain parts with a selection of espresso beverages ($3.50–$5.50), or bypass lattes in favor of their nutritious, primordial eggs with a bag of espresso beans in chocolate shells ($2.50). Dessert-seeking diners can choose from sweet eats such as scones ($2.25) and biscotti ($1.25).
Owned by a local military family, Jumpin' Java pours out tasty cups of coffee, tea, espresso, and smoothies in cushy, comfortable environs. As visitors lounge on easy chairs or search for long-lost siblings in the cushy leather couch, they sip from potable handwarmers full of coffee (a $1.25+ value) made from locally roasted beans, courtesy of Cactus Creek Gourmet Coffee Roaster in Aberdeen, caramel apple cider (a $2.75+ value), or chai lattes (a $3.25+ value). Each day brings two new coffee varietals, such as Colombian Supremo and Tanzanian Peaberry, and two new flavors, such as Angel Whispers and Jamaican Me Crazy. Each passing week sees new flavors for the hot or iced specialty espresso drinks, with past features including delights such as pumpkin-spice lattes, almond-joy mochas, and white-raspberry truffles (a $3.25+ value). Alongside piping-hot cups of joe and icy espresso treats, Jumpin' Java tickles earlobes with the occasional set of live music and entertains brains with WiFi, accessed by entering a password printed on your drink receipt and performing a secret knock on the laptop cover.
Village Coffee House sates caffeine cravings and silences grumbling tummies with a wide selection of gourmet java drinks, fresh baked goods, and café fare. Much like when a bumblebee gets trapped in one's ear canal, Village Coffee House’s long list of espresso beverages generate an invigorating buzz that stays all day. Start your day off with a café mocha ($3.39/$3.99), caramel macchiato ($3.58/$4.58), or the featured coffee ($1.89/$2.09), made with a carefully selected blend of coffee beans from around the world. Though both locations serve coffee and pastries, the South Peak location offers eight breakfast combos, including a ham-and-egg omelet ($4.49), biscuits and sausage gravy ($3.99), and a BLT sandwich ($3.49), providing the nourishing sustenance needed to withstand a taxing day of typing, stapling, and capturing the pesky office alligator. Noontime noshers can refuel with a grilled or fried chicken salad ($6.99), bacon cheeseburger ($7.99), or fried bologna sandwich ($5.99). With hardwood and tile floors, warm hues, and a cozy selection of tables, couches, and oversized chairs, Village Coffee House provides a relaxing environment for visitors to sip on espresso and surf the free WiFi.
From its humble beginnings in Kankakee, Illinois, in 1938, Dairy Queen has grown from a delicious experiment in soft-serve ice cream to a household name with more than 5,900 restaurants around the world. The shop's signature frozen delights are built upon frosty foundations of creamy chocolate or vanilla soft serve, which swirl idyllically into cones, cups, overturned top hats, sundaes, Peanut Buster parfaits, and the chain's iconic Blizzard treats, blended with crumbled candy and other mix-ins. Ice-cream cakes cleverly conceal surprise fillings of fudge and chocolate crunch between layers of vanilla and chocolate ice cream, providing sweet, sliceable sustenance for birthday parties and other special occasions.
The team of culinary connoisseurs at Fig Cafe & Grill quells hunger and thirst with delectable eclectic cuisine and refreshing fruit- and coffee-based beverages. Guests can appease apprehensive appetites with a caprese panini, which is chock-full of fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, and vowels ($6.69). Or opt for the pesto melt, a chicken breast sandwich topped with tomato, romaine lettuce, pesto spread, and gooey goat cheese ($7.95). Pair any stomach-sating entree with a gullet-gratifying specialty Turkish coffee ($2.49 for a medium) or a smoothie ($3.59) such as mango fusion, strawberry sensation, sour green apple, superfruit antioxidant, or banana strawberry. Though not part of today's deal, Fig Cafe doubles as a hookah lounge, where fruity tobaccos can be smoked through a hollowed-out baseball bat.
