Coffee & Treats in Parker

The friendly treatsmiths at blueberryfrog swirl and serve frozen creations made exclusively from organic ingredients free from artificial sweeteners. The small plain yogurt ($2.50) offers 106 calories of healthy sweet-seeking, but a luxuriously large flavored cup ($5.50) draws out desserts to decadent lengths. Patrons can add up to three toppings ($1.45), burying taste buds under an edible avalanche of fresh kiwi, blueberries, chocolate chips, granola, and other tasty accessories. Often locally grown, the fresh-fruit trimmings eschew flash-freezing and pasteurization processes to preserve their ability to dance the tarantella across tongues. In addition to being a rich and nutritious treat, the live probiotic cultures in yogurt can help aid digestion and simultaneously protect against lactose-intolerant-cephalopod bullying.

Head chef Valerie Rebellato combines her Brazilian origins with her love for its food in Cafe Paulista Grille’s made-from-scratch menu and its amenable atmosphere. Several meaty entrees encourage sharing, with large portions and a surfeit of sides such as fried banana, feijoada, and rice. Mix up beef and poultry with the Espetinho Caipira for Two, a vision of skewered sirloin and chicken breast ($27.99), among other skewered entree delights. Indecisive or surprise-loving diners can take a gustatory leap and leave their fate in Val’s deft hands, which will cook up whatever’s on her mind (except anything personally allergenic) ($8.99). Wash a meal down with a surfeit of exotic juice combinations ($3.69) featuring aliments such as cashew fruit, acai, and mango, or sip the strong house coffee ($1.99) with a rich, caramel fried banana ($2.99) or brazilian tiramisu ($4.99).
