Tonight I wanted to write a post about our newest addition…SUNDAES!! Starting next week we will be serving four specialty sundaes: Mocha Bean, Turtle, Berries and Cream and Cookies Smash. All of them are delicious. We will also have traditional caramel or chocolate sundaes, hand-dipped shakes in assorted flavors, three smoothie flavors (mixed berry, banana berry or banana orange), and our ever-popular Craving and Cream Puff shakes. Since we’ve always had all the ingredients on hand to dish up all these yummy treats, we thought it was a natural progression for our menu offerings.
Did you know we make our own Mocha Sauce? We do! It is not only exceptional, it is also dairy free, gluten free and vegan! We make this sauce about every other day from a premium cocoa powder. Our mocha sauce is as awesome in the mocha latte as it is over ice cream or blended into our Mocha Java Chiller.
We also sell an assortment of coffee themed chocolates such as Espresso Caramels, Mocha Beans and Chocolate Covered Biscottini. These sweet morsels of goodness make lovely additions to our sundaes as well.
Have your tried our homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies? You should…we have a new all butter recipe that couldn’t be better. The Cookie Smash Sundae comes with one of them broken in half and “smashed” into your chocolate sundae then topped with sprinkles and whipped cream. Oh my Yummness.
Our hope is to entice you to stop by this summer with your friends or family, kick back and enjoy a treat that it’s coming from a kitchen filled with love for what we do. Seriously…where else can you go and get so much homemade goodness??
Here it is, folks. In all it’s glory…Citron Tea! I know many of you have been asking about this heavenly Korean tea and I thought it warranted its own special post.
If you aren’t yet familiar with this drink, let me introduce you! Preparation is very simple. Mix 2-3 teaspoons per 8 ounces of hot water and enjoy. Citron is a Korean citrus fruit that is high in Vitamin C. I think of it as a mix of lemon and orange. The bottom of your drink, once prepared, is full of lovely rind that has been softened and tamed in flavor by the added honey found in the tea. Some people like to eat that rind, and some like to leave it. Citron Tea is great for that cold or cough you just can’t seem to shake. It’s also refreshing as an iced drink. To make it iced just dissolve the tea in a small amount of hot water and top it with lots of ice. Easy-peasy. And totally delicious.
We have a limited supply right now but we will be getting a larger shipment in the next few weeks. Come try some sunshine-in-a-cup today!
Doesn’t this photo just make you want to jump for joy?? All of us at The Coffee Corner Bistro have some serious spring fever, and spring fever has us thinking about pasta salads! This year we’d like to try something new and offer up non-pasta salads. That is, salads with things other than wheat pasta as the base. We have a throwback recipe called Northwoods Salad, (some of you may remember!) that has wild rice as it’s base, but we’re looking for other ideas as well. Do you have a favorite cold quinoa or rice salad that your family loves? Let us know about it so we can give it a try too!
In the meantime, enjoy this photo from last year…
O.K. that HAS to make you want to eat fresh locally grown foods! I know it’s making me hungry…
As Easter quickly approaches, we wanted to give everyone a heads-up about our upcoming business hours. We will be CLOSED on Easter Sunday. Saturday our hours will remain unchanged: 7am to 7pm. The Coffee Corner Bistro is open 7 days a week to help get you charged for whatever life brings at you. It’s important to us that our employees have major holidays to spend with their families; New Year’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas is our time to relax. We hope you enjoy your holiday with friends and family…we’ll do the same! 🙂
