From the glowing pendant lamps to the delicate European pastries lined up inside glass cases, Dolce Gastropub & Bakery is the living, breathing vision of Alice Lee. Growing up in restaurants, Lee knew she wanted to start something of her own?but she wanted it to be unique. At Dolce, classic American gastropub cuisine is served alongside a variety of craft beers. Diners can enjoy sit-down service during breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
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.
Though Podge's Claremont Juice Co. is under new management, the new owner, Uvon Cisneros, wants to ensure its continued success by keeping its menu of fresh, custom smoothies and deli fare while making little improvements to the eatery. The restaurant has made fresh fruit cry for more than 15 years, resulting in more than 40 smoothies in such flavors as orchard peach juice, berry banana, and pineapple sherbet. It complements the thick, cool drinks with more than 15 sandwiches, paninis, salads, and daily made soups.
A respite from franchised coffeehouses, The Spot Cafe invites customers to sit and stay awhile. Guests sip drinks made from locally grown and roasted Klatch Coffee or smoothies that are made when they're ordered rather than stored for weeks in popsicle form. Mocha-colored walls lend warmth as customers linger for breakfast or lunch, noshing on sandwiches, pastries, and housemade soup in just-baked bread bowls.
Known for being quick and convenient, The UPS Store is a three-headed office chimera belching forth flame-free shipping, printing, and office necessities. Hand-knit blankets and bronze sculptures of knitted blankets, snuggly nestled in packing peanuts ($4.99–$5.99/cubicle foot) or wrapped with bubble wrap ($5.99/50 ft.), fit comfortably inside a 12"x12"x12" cardboard box ($3.99–$6.49). Customers can cast their bundles off in whatever time frame works best, using one of the full range of UPS shipping options, including next-day air, ground, and international shipping. Shipping and packaging costs vary by location.
Named 2009 Micro Roaster of the Year by Roast Magazine, Klatch Coffee's casual coffeterias celebrate some of the world's highest quality coffee, carefully sourced to international farmers under direct trade ethics. Roasted in small batches for maximum freshness and minimum inter-bean squabbling, Klatch's java pleases patrons with a drip coffee of the day ($1.95–$2.20), as well as designer drinks such as the Mexican mocha ($3.40–$4.30), infused with spicy Ibarra chocolate. Discerning slurpers can also sate barking bellies with a hammy, cheesy eggel sandwich ($3.99) from the breakfast menu, or train teeth on heartier lunch fare such as a cranberry walnut salad ($3.75) or turkey pesto panini ($5.95).
