Conceived and opened by a team of mom entrepreneurs, Kokopelli Café whips up its daily house-made goodies and coffee creations in a stylish and family-friendly environment. The batter-covered confectioners at Kokopelli start baking at 5 a.m. each day to ensure customers' teeth meet little resistance against the moist, fresh-baked cakes. Your Groupon allows you to mix up to two flavours to create a well-balanced half dozen. The café offers six different takes on the cakes; you can choose from among the classic vanilla, chocolate, and coconut cakes or opt for a more adventurous twist on the delicacy. A frosty lemon cupcake makes cake from life's lemons, while the chocolate mint and Oreo-themed cupcakes do not.
At Indigo Food Cafe, vegan chef, café owner, and Ukrainian polyglot Lovena Galyide orients taste buds toward uncooked fruit, nut, and veggie dishes in an effort to jump-start the body's natural healing process. A high tea menu pairs organic, fair-trade teas with bite-size treats including collard rolls, kale chips, and berry cheesecake, and a dinner menu includes collard roll-ups and stuffed portabella burgers. Desserts range from healthy indulgences such as coconut cream pie or lemon goji bars that are also served at breakfast. Lovena also leads classes to help raw foodies bring her café’s nourishing dishes into their own kitchens. During intro classes or more focused sessions on desserts or beauty, Galyide unveils the health benefits and top-hat-decorating potential of figs, coconuts, nettles, and other vitamin-crammed superfoods as her students make and eat kale chips and almond milk and learn to use vital appliances from food processors to dehydrators.
Jaylena Photography captures life's most weighted winks with personal and pivotal photographs. A one-hour session seizes significant subjects such as engagements, newborns, alien abductions, and more, extending each treasured moment into frames and memories. Play fetch with your corgi on his favourite beach or allow cameras to accompany your poodle as she refreshes her extensions. Newborns are especially photogenic, and photographs of them make great keepsakes for grandmothers, godfathers, and boring, not-as-cute older siblings.
Momento Coffee House focuses on the subtleties of coffeemaking to offer quality brews to customers. The shop eschews boring coffee-pot technology to use equipment such as a French press and a La Marzocco FB/70 espresso machine, resulting in the sort of freshly brewed precision usually reserved for cyborgian baristas. Sample the grounded goods with a two-ounce cup of espresso ($2.75) or a 12-ounce cup of coffee ($2.50). Other drinkable delights include the Americano ($3), latte ($3.75), hot chocolate ($3), and loose-leaf tea ($3). Momento Coffee House also partners up with JagaSilk to serve maccha green tea ($4.50), available in latte ($6), iced-tea ($5.50), and mocha ($6.25) variations. Gluten-free and French-inspired goodies are available for snacking betwixt sips.
