Coffee & Treats in Reno

Select Local Merchants

Ice-cream slingers at The Hop, a 1950s-style malt shop, scoop creamy concoctions into crunchy waffle cones alongside gluten-free, Kosher, low-carb, no-sugar-added, and nondairy frozen desserts. A two-scoop sundae ($4.75) of Birthday Cake ice cream combines swirls of blue icing and pieces of white sponge cake, replicating the experience of biting into a whole birthday cake without ingesting a lit candle. Try a single-scoop cone of tiramisu ($2), sweet italian cream cheese and coffee ice creams mixed with ladyfingers, shaved chocolate, and chocolate-espresso swirls, or grab a quart ($7) to go. Customers can divvy up a banana split ($6), ice cream robed in chocolate, strawberries, pineapples, and whipped cream before setting sail in a banana yacht, or forego the sweets for a hand-dipped corn dog ($3) served on a stick to put anxious puppeteers at ease.

At locations in more than a dozen states, U-Swirl delivers more than 40 flavors of frozen yogurt packed with live and active cultures and designed in low-fat, non-fat, and sugar-free varieties. Self-serve machines line the shop’s lime green walls, ready for customers to dispense heaping swirls of old favorites, such as cookie & cream and fruit sorbet, or seasonal innovations, including eggnog in the winter and fireworks in the summer. Next, patrons head to the toppings bar and crown their frozen treats with as much fresh fruit, cereal, and candy as they can handle before weighing cups and paying by the ounce.

The scene is a classic American diner: uniformed waitresses walk past rows of booths, pausing to refill coffee mugs and set down towering stacks of pancakes. Large, sunlit booths provide parents and kids with a venue to converse or sign a treaty that finally ends bitter remote-control battles. Behind the service window, cooks bustle about the kitchen, whipping up generous portions of biscuits and gravy, three-egg omelets, and Mexican-inspired specialties—including chilaquiles, eggs with chorizo, and giant breakfast burritos. Come lunchtime, kitchen staffers turn their attention toward hearty burgers, hot specialty sandwiches, and chicken-fried steaks.

Polar Bear Frozen Treats’ frozen custard, churned slowly to avoid whipped-in air, coats tongues with a dense, creamy coolness fashioned daily from an authentic Midwestern mix imported from Neenah, Wisconsin. Dairy gurus fill cups or cones with single scoops ($2.80) of rich flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, or orange creamsicle, serving them slightly warmer than normal ice cream in order to avoid freezing taste buds or overchilling susceptible brains. Concretes, a blend of custard and toppings, concoct straw-defying feats, configured into flavors such as Oreo, peach cobbler, or grandma’s apple pie, which contrasts the sweet richness of the cream with salt-roasted pecans and sarcastic one-liners ($4.99–$6.99).

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.
