Espresso Chip Cake
Sometimes customers ask, “What desserts pair best with coffee?” Maybe they are hosting a brunch or maybe they have planning their dessert after a lovely dinner with friends. Whatever the situation, we all have our favorite treats and favorite pastry/coffee match-ups. In the morning, I’ll take any of our scones, but our warm Chili-Jack Scone lures me most often with its savory cheesiness. The richness of our scones pairs nicely with a micro-lot drip or a non-fat latte. In the afternoon, I’m a sucker for our Vegan Oat Bar, which I pair with everything or our Espresso Chip Cake. After dinner, I like a darker roast or our decaf with a bite of a cookie.
Chocolate is, perhaps, the favorite compliment to coffee. The flavors of coffee and chocolate enhance one another. Imagine them like a great comedy team or seasoned duet partners. Our bakers work every day to provide fresh treats and pastries.
At our cafes, we have many chocolate options.
- Salted-Caramel Brownies, which are a little bit of fudge-like heaven.
- Jack’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie (has nuts), which are great for kids and the kid in you.
- Chocolate Croissant for when you want to indulge.
- Espresso Chip Cake made of espresso, chocolate chips and a rich pound cake batter.
- Medici—Our Signature Mocha with orange zest.
Our Espresso Chip Cake and our Medici received a nice feature when Rachel Ray visited Seattle for $40 a Day. Please note–we make our Mochas a little light on the chocolate so the richness of the coffee shines, but if you prefer more chocolate, just let us know. You can have a piece of Espresso Chip Cake while visiting a cafe or order a whole cake from our online bakery if you’re planning a gathering. Pair it with great coffee and your guests will rave!
