J. Arthur's Coffee just opened a new drive-through, and the Roseville-based cafe celebrated with five days of festivities, including live music, various freebies, and samples of everything from coffee to grain-free cupcakes.
J. Arthur's offers coffee, tea, a variety of soups and stews, and some pastries. A tasty treat is the Affogato, a scoop of Castle Rock Organic Cream with a drizzle of Dogwood Coffee espresso. J. Arthur's is also the only place to offer grain-free cupcakes made by Simply Cupcakes
. For anyone who limits grain intake but wants to also feed the sugar monster, these little cakes are a godsend. The Paleo-Indulgence cupcakes were fluffy and decadent. Salty chocolate caramel was on the menu, and though peanuts are technically not Paleo (being a legume), the peanut-butter-cup flavor featured chocolate cake with a ganache filling, peanut butter frosting, and a drizzle of chocolate.
