Not everyone does R & R the same way. So when Les and Diane Corieri founded RnR, they wanted to give it a little bit of everything. At 8 a.m., the kitchen starts serving a diverse selection of breakfast dishes that includes pulled-pork hash and Chambord french toast. The stoves stay hot throughout the day for a late-night menu of quesadillas, gourmet burgers, and philly cheesesteaks that are available until 2 a.m. Customers can also pop in to savor a fresh-brewed cup of Italian coffee, to sample a wine from the 1,800-bottle cellar, or to finally figure out what a restaurant looks like.
With more than 700 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company's product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
Blended drinks dominate the menu, with options including fruit refreshers?made with naturally hydrating, electrolytic coconut water?and pre-boosted smoothies that can fill nutritional gaps with infusions of protein, immunity boosters, or antioxidants that neutralize accidentally swallowed pool water. The drink list also includes organic house-blend coffee and Talbot Teas, including Paris Breakfast and SOHO Earl.
For those with heartier appetites, steel-cut oats steep in soymilk before being enhanced with toppings such as apples, cinnamon, and brown-sugar crumble. The lunch hour presents protein-packed mini wraps, toasted bistro sandwiches and California Flatbreads that pack only about 320?420 calories each.
Going out to breakfast poses the eternal question: are you in a sweet or savory mood? At Orange Table, however, the line between the two is deliciously blurred. The jalape?o pecan pancakes transform a traditionally sugary dish into a spicy treat, while sauce infused with Sailor Jerry's spiced rum adds an extra burn to the bananas foster French toast. Orange Table serves these breakfast dishes throughout the day, along with omelets, hashes, and honey-infused yogurt. Drinks from the espresso bar and regular coffee offer ample hot liquids in which to dunk your toast or absentmindedly dunk your own hand.
In the afternoons, the kitchen unveils its lunch specialties such as the Arrogant Bastard burger, served with 4 ounces of the namesake ale as well as bacon and house barbecue sauce. For a lighter meal, the Cafe sandwich blends house-pulled mozzarella, basil, tomato, and balsamic dressing. Despite the menu's mainstays, there's still plenty of variety?especially on the walls, which change their decor every month to spotlight work from a different local artist.
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.
Spacious, warm interiors welcome gobblers and guzzlers to the locally owned Echo Coffee, where a focused lineup of soups and salads are homespun from fresh, organic ingredients. All the fresh-bread bookends arrive from nearby Simply Bread, and nearly all deli meat is lovingly roasted in house by a group of celebrity comedians. Nosh tasty cold cuts with fare such as the turkey and brie topped with mixed greens and light basil mayo ($8), or the chilled veg wrap, stuffed with Napa cabbage, hummus, shredded carrots, tomato, and cucumber dip, neighbored by a mini yogurt dip ($7.50). Warm icy tongues with hot 'wiches such as the pressed Cuban ($9), a sizzling permutation of roasted pork, ham, and swiss cheese decked with fixings on a French roll. Leaf lovers can dive into a pile of the Asian chicken salad, its organic, crisp romaine lettuce adorned with a mountain of Napa cabbage, sprouts, cucumbers, carrots, and peanuts furbished with peanut-coconut dressing ($8.50).
There’s an Irish legend that insists the best cure for a hangover is to simply bury yourself up to the neck in moist, cold river sand. Luckily, Scottsdale isn’t Ireland. Instead of chilly rivers, Scottsdale has Daily Dose, home of the “Best Hangover Breakfast”, according to the Phoenix New Times. The winning meal, fittingly named the Hangover Sandwich, buries a fried egg under a generous amount of applewood-smoked bacon, turkey sausage, caramelized jalapeños, onions, and melted cheddar. A final drizzle of spicy harissa oil adds a touch of heat. Yet, even customers who aren't reeling after a night of drinks can find something to love at Daily Dose. The breakfast menu alone (served every day until 4 p.m.) offers seven kinds of eggs benedict, nearly a dozen omelets, and pancakes and french toast dressed up with chocolate-covered strawberries, cinnamon-apple crunch, or caramelized pecans. The kitchen trades in sweet for spicy during lunch and dinner service via flatbreads, sandwiches, and burgers that mirror the local cuisine, including an ancho chili reuben and The Gladiator burger, which features a 10-ounce patty slathered in caramelized jalapenos and onions, peppered bacon, and whatever three cheeses have survived the morning's dairy-wrestling match.
