Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock 'n' roll, yin and yang, and bald-eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a five-item punch card at Julia's Solstice Cafe in Fairbanks (up to a $22.50 value). Punches can be redeemed for the following items:
- Solstice cupcakes (a $4 value each)
- Mayan brownies (a $3.75 value each)
- Medium-size coffees or teas (up to a $4.50 value each)
The baristas and bakers at Julia's Solstice Cafe pour mugs of tea and gourmet air-roasted coffee to complement decadent vegan, gluten-free baked goods. Forks prone to wilt in the presence of dairy products coast unabashedly through a vegan, gluten-free Solstice cupcake, topped with a pineapple ring to signify its upcoming marriage to taste buds, or 100% organic and vegan Mayan brownies blanketed by a raw cacao ganache sweetened with yacon syrup. Steamed half-and-half and chocolate bolster the 12-ounce mocha breve to shake up slumbering eyes and fill daily chocolate quotas, and cups of cappuccino lord over espresso kingdoms beneath a crown of frothy foam.
