The baristas at J. Arthur's Coffee strive to cultivate appreciation for artisanal coffee by focusing on unblended coffee with unique characteristics. The shop trades directly with farmers that use sustainable methods, developing relationships with individual coffee-bean producers who are dedicated to distributing high-quality beans that taste magical but don’t sprout into beanstalks. J. Arthur’s blends espresso drinks with whole and 1% milk from Autumnwood Farms, a local family-owned operation that only raises grass-fed cattle. As patrons sip lattes and scarf down house-made sandwiches, live musicians fill the air with soothing tunes.
Since opening the doors of St. Paul Bagelry & Deli in 2007, sisters and co-owners Dodie Green and Peggy Teed have aspired to improve the lives of their customers with New York?style bagels, frothy smoothies, and freshly roasted coffee. Staffers also dole out stacked sandwiches during breakfast and lunch with piping hot cups of coffee and foamy lattes. For morning meetings and group get-togethers, catering trays can be delivered to your door piled high with scones, bagels, and an audio tape of a rooster crowing.
Sweet, tart, and chocolatey flavors mingle effortlessly at Pop Culture Frozen Yogurt. That's because the rotating roster of 10 flavors can be mixed and matched with the shop's supply of 70 toppings, whipped cream machine, and extensive sauce bar to create unique dessert combinations. Healthier toppings pair well with flavors such as the non-dairy black raspberry sorbet, and bits of candy add even more decadence to flavors such as cake batter and root beer float. No matter the flavor, though, all of the options feature live and active cultures that help keep the body healthy.
