Glenview Grind's story is a rather inspiring narrative. Rather than merely frowning about large chain Caribou Coffee's decision to close its Glenview shop, local resident Perry Mandera decided to do something about it. With some elbow grease and support from friends, he re-opened the shop in his image as Glenview Grind. Impressively, he retained the old Caribou staff, and together they prepare coffee, pastries, smoothies, and more for the customers who had built a routine of going to the shop and for those who prefer local establishments. But even more impressively, they contribute proceeds to local charities and organizations—a textbook picture of a community sticking together.

With an eye on nutrition, they whip up tasty Muttloaf, stuffed manicotti, and even “Yappy Hour” drinks such as the Muttini, which boosts digestive health. The menu also includes fresh marrow bones and other deli eats, desserts such as mini peanut-butter bars, and Bowser Beer, a brew concocted from beef broth.

Juice Rx founder Dean Kasal had a two-fold vision for his wellness-promoting juices: great taste and great health. Kasal's infatuation with all-natural health comes from a very personal place. Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and reacting poorly to the pills his doctor prescribed, he began his own path to well-being after by making his own juices. The concoctions required little more than organic fruits and vegetables and a homemade liquifier ray, but the benefits were staggering. His digestive troubles vanished, and by the age of 29, he was able to retire from corporate life and start pursuing his true calling: helping folks get healthy with 100% organic, raw, unprocessed juices.
A good portion of his success has to do with his juicing methods. Rather than using traditional juicers?whose motor heat saps vital nutrients from the fruits and veggies?he deploys an awe-inspiring hydraulic press. The contraption's cold-press method deploys 5,000 pounds of pressure to squeeze a bounty of vitamins from the organic fruits and veggies.
Pulp-free and nutrient-rich, those juices include a metabolism-stimulating spicy lemonade with green apple, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper; a tropical green blend of pineapple and kale that alkalinizes the body and floods cells with a potent mixture of vitamins and minerals; and an antioxidant-packed citrus blend with succulent pomegranate called Liquid Love. Besides customized juice-packs, Juice Rx also supplies expert-built cleanses that range from the fruit-filled Regular Cleanse to the low-sugar Extreme Green Cleanse.
When putting together the decor at C U Latte Cafe, it would seem that its designers started with a white box and went from there. But, this blank basis makes the colors within it stand out in sharp contrast. The red of a woman's dress in a local artist's painting. The brown of the leather sofa. The pink of a cup of frozen lemonade. The menu is similarly simple, focusing on the necessities of a café visit: a cup of steaming coffee, a light sandwich, and a laptop to spill it all on. Patrons may choose to take their drinks indoors, surrounded by artwork and decorative reeds, or nestle around the patio's intimate table.
