A drive-thru and walk-up destination for a quick, satisfying cup of joe, Rocky Mountain Mocha's small stature can be deceiving, as there's much more than freshly brewed coffee on the extensive menu. Using fresh beans imported from Guatemala, Ethiopia, Honduras, and El Salvador, baristas craft drinks such as flavored lattes, Black Forest mochas, and foamy cappuccinos. The menu also includes non-caffeinated Italian sodas in a variety of flavors, such as strawberry, sugar cane, lemon, and watermelon.
Neon-blue lights illuminate Clutch Gaming Arena, where 50 gaming PCs and five Xbox 360 stations await eager players. Gamers can choose from more than 300 games, matched with a huge variety of energy drinks, nonalcoholic beverages, and snacks. After a day racing in Ducati World Championship or blasting newbs in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, patrons have the chance to play the spectator; the facility broadcasts national and international tournaments on a massive projector. When it's time to get back in control, gamers can take part in Clutch's own casted, cash-prize tournaments for popular games such as League of Legends and StarCraft II.
Socializing starts at an early age. That's why the staff at The Coffee Social created a space designed for both adults and kids to gather. In the sky-blue and white caf? grownups can chat with friends over fresh-baked pastries, lattes, and macchiatos made with up to three shots of espresso. Kids, meanwhile, can cruise the free WiFi, discuss favorite cartoons, and trade blue-chip stocks for cooler colors as they sip on frozen blended drinks in flavors such as bubble gum and cotton candy, each topped with swirls of whipped cream.
Nanna's Tea has created a collection of tasty white, green, herbal, and black teas from around the world to marry with its delicate tea sandwiches, soups, and daily-baked pastries. Its picturesque outdoor gardens present a placid locale for visitors decompress while taking formal tea or recharge while chatting over breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The tea-of-the-month club exposes members to a vast array of exotic flavors, and children's tea parties teach tikes how to use the teaspoon to slap the hands of any teddy bear caught hoarding crumpets.
As soon as visitors step into The ReCyclery Bike Cafe, the café's commitment to recycling becomes evident. Partners Justin and Brian envisioned the shop as a place where perfectly good—and often pristine—used bike parts would be restored, repurposed, or rebuilt for use in repairing and constructing bikes. The entire process is meant to eliminate waste and reduce the environmental impact caused by rusty bike chains that would otherwise be discarded into park fountains. Justin and Brian then took this vision and expanded it, making sure the hand-built café tables and chairs, as well as the bar and the floor, were all crafted from recycled materials. Visitors can feel the welcoming sense of homeyness and creative purpose as they sip coffee, sample the pocket sandwiches and kolache assembled by chef Francis Rojas, or just relax with the free WiFi while waiting on a bike tune-up.
Aspen Juice preserves the nutritional value of its produce by the cold-pressing process. Unlike blending, this technique doesn't create any unwanted heat or oxygen, resulting in smooth and tasty beverages. Indeed, the process itself is important, but so are the actual fruits and veggies. Aspen Juice sources those from local, Colorado-based producers and makes sure they're organic whenever possible. The resulting menu features juices designed for numerous purposes, including immune system health, detoxification, and energy. One energy elixir packs kale, cucumber, pineapple, mint, and ginger into every sip, making it the perfect boost for busy professionals and cyborgs with low batteries.
