Elm Heights Coffee Bar News

This month we'd like to highlight that Third Place Coffee Bar, located in the lovely mezzanine of our Elm Heights store, has recently experienced a menu update . We've added three flavors of frozen blended drinks to the menu for those who want an icy fix. There's a brand new Bloomingfoods Chai flavor made from our special blend of tea and spice, Mocha made with Ghirardelli dark chocolate sauce and espresso from Brown County Coffee Roasters, and a simple Coffee flavor made with espresso and a touch of simple syrup made from cane sugar. These are made from scratch not a powdered mix and go great with whipped cream on top.

We're still offering our delicious cold-brewed coffee over ice: made with a custom blend roasted by Partridge & Quigley (Whole beans sold at our Near Westside, East, and Elm Heights Stores).  Look for our cold-brew at the Farmer's Market on Saturday, and soon our Kirkwood store will be serving it as well.

For our espresso and drip-brewed coffee we feature Brown County Coffee whose delicious espresso blend and single origin offerings are the backbone of our menu. For our decaffeinated espresso we feature Rex Coffee Roasting from Terre Haute and we're also offering some premium, single-origin beans as a manual brew.

To accompany your beverage of choice we have the indulgent tarts from Pie First Bakery, locally hand-made from local and regional ingredients. We have something for everyone, with tarts made with gluten-free and vegan ingredients available as well. Different flavors arrive each week, including everything from rhubarb and raspberry to mango and ginger, blackberry with streusel, or roasted apple.

Finally, our summer hours have changed. We're now open 7:-00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Mon-Sat, and 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sun. Come in and see us! We'll be expecting you.

Boda Boda Bike Give Away

At our Elm Heights Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, October 26, three-year-old Josephine Barlow won the coveted Yuba Boda Boda—“the world’s lightest and most compact cargo bike,” to quote Yuba’s slogan. Perfect for a family ride on the town, Josephine and her mom Kayleen can go all sorts of places together, including make a trip to Bloomingfoods and haul groceries home.

In addition to making this give away possible, our wonderful community partners Revolution Bike and Bean were kind enough to set up shop at the Grand Opening, answering questions about the Boda Boda and selling bike swag on-site. This partnership has enhanced our commitment to sustainability and wellness, as Bike and Bean also helped sponsor the bike rack at Elm Heights. Be sure to take advantage of the ten percent discount that Bloomingfoods member-owners receive on Bike and Bean merchandise and services!

We love forging community partnerships like the one we have with Bike and Bean because they allow us to give back to our member-owners and to say thank you for making the Elm Heights dream a reality. Congratulations to Josephine and Kaylee and may you make many memories together on your new bike!


Our Partnership: Our community partner Revolution Bike and Bean has generously sponsored the new bike rack at the Elm Heights store. They were also the force behind the bike giveaway on Member-owner/Customer Appreciation Day and the Elm Heights Grand Opening celebration (http://yubabikes.com/bikes/boda-boda/). In addition to offering a 10% discount on goods and services for Bloomingfoods member-owners, Bike and Bean hosts bike maintenance classes for a bargain price.
