What You'll Get
Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee and treats at Planet Java at the West Shaw Avenue drive-through location.
Planet Java’s menu adds a healthy jitter to one's morning step with delicious, fresh-roasted joe juice served from a convenient drive-through brew shack. Feed your need for black liquid speed with a mondo (20-oz.) cup of regular coffee ($2), or try a tall (12-oz.) Aztec mocha ($3.60), which blends espresso with cinnamon-chocolate and steamed milk to fill your demitasse with a healthy dose of post-all-nighter elixir. Otherwise, cool off after a hotcake-eating competition with a 20-oz. iced option; bathe your sweaty mouth with the refreshing nectars of a cold chai charger ($3.95), a concoction of espresso, vanilla chai, and steamed milk or water. For something more hedonistic, let the caramel and milk chocolate contents of a hot or blended caramel decadent ($4.35) effervesce within your stomach while you bathe in a cistern of foie gras and watch masked servants dance for your amusement.
Prepping each potion with gourmet grindings from the smooth-roasting Dillanos, Planet Java keeps its cups overflowing with freshness by ordering its beans direct from the roaster every week. Flavorful food is also available, including specialty salads, tasty scones, muffins, and donuts. Re-ignite your mind’s dwindling embers of inspiration and come up with a good excuse for arriving to work late and covered in tarantulas with today’s Groupon to Planet Java.
This Groupon is valid at the West Shaw Avenue drive-through only.
