Before the invention of blenders, smoothies required laborious chewing, often clogged straws, and received harsh criticism for their misleading name. Sip a well-blended beverage with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of 16-ounce smoothies at Kanoe Cafe in Tipp City.
The blender whizzes at Kanoe Cafe serve up refreshing smoothies infused with fresh fruits and frozen yogurt. Peruse the menu and choose a 16-ounce smoothie ($3.75) from the eight preplanned combos, or create your own cacophony of flavors. Each smoothie begins with ice, Wow Cow frozen yogurt, real fruit juice, and heaping scoops of fresh fruit. The Mango Tango puts a dip in imbibers' steps without the fear of dropping their partners, and the Orange Sunset's inclusion of citrus and vitamin C prevents outbreaks of scurvy and subsequent spikes in the pirate population. Other steadfast fruit aggregates include strawberry banana, wild berry, and Tropical Rage, all of which customers can add a protein boost to for $2 more. Any funds left over after your initial visit will be transferred onto a gift card for future smoothie excursions.
With walnut-toned hardwood floors and cozy tables, Kanoe Cafe makes an ideal meet-up destination for a comfortable chat or an aggressive Scrabble game. The cafe showcases pieces from different local artists—ranging from expressionistic watercolors to large-format silver-gelatin photographs—and changes its display every 60 days, ensuring that the local werewolf has two full-moon cycles to complete his series of impressionistic still lifes.
