Good-bye, Pumpkin…Hello, Gingerbread!

This fall at HeBrews we experienced a lot of things pumpkin–all delicious and spicy. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, pumpkin has gone off the radar as well. I will miss the Pumpkin English Toffee cookies the most I think, but there are other delicious sweets to look forward to.

This week started off with a Gingerbread Scone frosted with Maple Buttercream. I do believe it will be a holiday favorite around here. There are also other treats and drinks in the mix with gingerbread this month too, so drop by and check out our baked goods or put in your request for a Gingerbread Latte.

‘Tis the Season!

Something About Lemon

Something about lemon reminds me of spring, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s going to be in the seventies outside today. I think I have a case of spring fever coming on! A friend of mine showed me a bouquet of sunny-yellow jonquils she picked from her yard this past weekend–and it’s still February!

Anyway, back to lemon. Lemon finds its way into almost everything here at HeBrews, except maybe the coffee. Today we have a cute lemon poppy seed scone on the menu, drizzled with a sweet-n-tart lemony icing. Other days you might find lemon in a cranberry lemon scone lemon blueberry scone or raspberry lemon muffin.

Something about lemon, just makes you want to smile.

Happy New Year & Happy New You!

2012 has gotten off to a speeding start! It’s already January 10th and it seems like we celebrated the turn of the year just a few days ago. For many people, with the new year come New Year’s Resolutions. If you’re watching your waistline after the holidays, we’re happy to work with you! Here are some helpful tips for ordering some of your favorites from HeBrews:

  • Order your bagel sandwich “skinny.” You’ll save 1/3 of the calories by doing so. All we do is slice the bagel in thirds, toast the top and bottom for your sandwich, and toss out the middle slice–along with the extra calories!
  • Order your coffee drink “skinny.” Save 40 calories for every cup of milk by substituting skim milk for 2% milk. Skim milk does amazingly well in steamed drinks–you’ll never miss the calories!
  • Try regular or spicy mustard on your sandwich in place of mayonnaise and save up to 45 calories per tablespoon!
  • Order your favorite sandwich without cheese and save up to 90 calories per slice.
  • Try Baked Chips instead of regular and save almost 100 calories–or better yet, have a piece of fruit and save another 100!

Remember, it takes 3500 calories to equal 1 pound, so over time with just a few consistent changes, you’ll see the difference in your waistline!

Happy New Year and Happy New You!

Cafe Mocha Madness!

December is almost here and it’s time to splurge on all things mocha! It’s hard to beat the coffee + chocolate combo, whether it’s in a drink or baked into a muffin!

Our Mocha Cream Cheese Swirl Muffin is a sight to behold–a mocha muffin studded with chocolate chips and a special cream cheese topping swirled throughout–now that’s a muffin you can treat yourself to this Christmas season!

This month why not try a Candy Cane Mocha for a seasonal twist on a classic hot drink. If Santa Claus has a favorite drink besides milk, it’s got to be a Candy Cane Mocha.

This holiday season, what kind of mocha madness will you experience?

Hello, Pumpkin Scone!

The Pumpkin Scone is back, making its 2011 debut, topped with cinnamon-spiced cream cheese frosting. With cooler temperatures, cloudy skies, and Thanksgiving coming up in two weeks, pumpkin-flavored goodies are a menu-necessity!

Until the end of the year, you can expect Pumpkin Scones and Pumpkin Pie Muffins, chock full of spices and pecans, to make frequent appearances at HeBrews.

And while you’re here, remember to order your favorite fall drink–a Pumpkin Spice Latte or Cappuccino, or a decadent Pumpkin Pie Chai Tea–served steaming hot or as a frozen concoction topped off with delicious whipped cream.

Happy November!

Fall + Pumpkins = Happiness

With the arrival of October, I feel fall is officially here; although the weather outside is still too warm for fall in my opinion. But we are thinking positively for falling temperatures and offering fall-inspired goodies–from drinks to baked goods. Today, the Sugar Cookies decided to get decked out for fall and are adorned with green icing and a candy corn pumpkin–a sure recipe for happiness!

For drinks, we have Pumpkin Pie and Gingerbread flavor for lattes and cappuccinos. Since it’s still warm outside, we decided to experiment with our Spiced Chai mix. We added some Pumpkin Pie Sauce to make a Frozen Pumpkin Pie Chai drink. It tastes like a pumpkin pie shake. Words simply can’t describe the deliciousness….mmmmmmm will have to do.

Discover your recipe for happiness today!
