Like a queen bee, a good cup of coffee is carefully tended to by workers, generates a buzz, and makes you scream if it lands between your eyes. Save face with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of coffee, espresso drinks, and smoothies at Java Jane in Shoreline.
Java Jane's plethora of gourmet beverages runs the drinkable gamut, from icy smoothies to steaming signature mochas. Begin a caffeinated patriot's ride down the gullet with a Roosevelt cheesecake mocha, with white chocolate and cheesecake and raspberry syrup constituting a unified liquid dessert ($2.80–$4.05), or celebrate simplicity with a Victorious vanilla latte ($2.80–$3.30). A Cuppa Joe ($1.50–$2) can get early-morning synapses to play nice, and one of four fruit smoothies ($3.65–$6.25), such as the strawberry banana yogurt or mango, keeps summer suns from overheating the head. Italian sodas ($1.55–$3.10) and iced Americanos ($1.55–$2.05) round out the on-ice lineup.
