Coffee gives one a much needed morning jolt without vigorous calisthenics or a tickle fight with Zeus. Obtain a calmer form of morning electricity with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a 10-coffee-and-tea punch card, good for any combination of 10 beverages, at Urartu Coffee in Glendale (up to a $17.50 value). This Groupon is not valid toward Armenian coffee.
Nestled inside a blue-bordered storefront, Urartu Coffee serves up house-crafted java and a bevy of teas in its relaxing lounge space. Browse the drink menu for caffeinated goodies such as regular coffee ($1.50) and iced coffee ($1.75) or the nonadrenaline second-cousin, decaf coffee ($1.50), all blended with spices and beans that are free of bitterness despite a recent breakup. Teas ($1.75) brim with 13 toasty flavors, such as passion berry, chamomile, orange ginger mint, and english breakfast. Sip on a heated cup or opt for a green, black, or herbal iced tea ($1.75), then take advantage of the free WiFi on your own computer or on one of the establishment's before spinning out the door in a cartoon tornado of caffeine.
Although Urartu Coffee's convenient online ordering system helps guests to nosh on the go, its free WiFi and stylish seating urges them to stay awhile as they savor the menu of fresh pastries and build-your-own sandwiches. Bread and bagels insulate deli-style meats with garnishes such as basil leaves and olives as croissants brim with fruit, chocolate, and cheese, all dunk-worthy in the café’s myriad coffees and teas. For a fruity jolt more satisfying than shoving a strawberry into a light socket, Urartu’s skilled baristas blend smoothies and squeeze juice daily in a wide array of flavors.
