Inside The Buzz Coffee & Café, the scent of just-brewed organic coffee mingles with that of creatively flavored waffles. Chefs blend Carbon's Golden Malted Waffle Batter with sweet morsels such as chocolate chips, berries, and cinnamon, or mix in savory ingredients, such as the Hot Mama's brown sugar and bacon or the Western's cheddar and ham. The menu also offers hot and cold sandwiches and wraps, as well as fruit smoothies and tea drinks.
To find Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffee & Smoothies, just look for the surfboard hanging in the lowest level of the food court at the Burnsville Center. The aloha spirit permeates everything they do.

Although the drive-thru of West Side Perk lets patrons easily grab their coffee to go, this café is no caffeine assembly line. Instead, owners Dave and Deb Irvin have sought to create a community-oriented cultural hub where locals can banter about significant issues, get some work done via free WiFi, and catch up with old friends over cups of gourmet coffee. The full menu of coffee, tea, and smoothies pairs up with a selection of sandwiches and soups that rotate by the day of the week or by which vegetable was not pardoned by the chef. When the lights begin to dim at week's end, the café entertains patrons with its Friday Night Movie Series, which showcases kid-friendly films to audiences nestled in the café's cushy seating.

Even better, folks can trade in the standard paper bowl for waffle cones or opt for flavors that have no or reduced fat as well as ones without added sugar.
