The scent of house-made waffle cones ($1) wafts throughout the eco-chic café, which serves up locally sourced craft ice cream in flavors such as chocolate peanut butter, strawberry cheesecake, blueberry pomegranate, espresso chocolate chip, and a cast of rotating flavors (prices vary by number of scoops). Smoothies ($4.60 for 24 oz.), milk shakes ($5.75 for 24 oz.), and bags of whole-bean coffee ($12.50–$14.50) are also available.
Blend of Buckroe
Behind a distinctive pink-and-purple-painted storefront, Blend of Buckroe's baristas brew individual cups of coffee and espresso drinks. The fledgling cafe enchanted the palate of an Examiner.com reporter, who heralded the shop's selection of light and dark roasts as "delightfully smooth" and "satisfying". Mugs of macchiato and mocha partner with plates of pastries and quiche on the simple café menu, augmented by sumptuous spoonfuls of ice cream. Artwork dangles from the purple walls of the WiFi-saturated seating area, and colorful couch cushions, old-fashioned benches, and an antique barbershop chair nestle patrons as they flip through magazines or compose lengthy sonnets to their favorite Supreme Court justice.
