In the Vietnamese culture, strong iced coffee combined with sweet condensed milk is very popular. This ice cream sundae was inspired by these two flavors. The bold flavors mixed with peanut brittle and a pinch of cinnamon adds a great flavor. This recipe can be found at delish.com
1 cup(s) sugar
1 tablespoon(s) sugar
1/2 cup(s) water
1 cup(s) unsalted roasted peanuts
1/2 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
1 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
3/4 cup(s) sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoon(s) instant coffee mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons of hot water
1/2 cup(s) heavy cream
2 pint(s) vanilla ice cream
Lightly grease a baking sheet. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of the sugar with the water and bring to a boil. Cook over moderately high heat, undisturbed, until an amber caramel forms, about 12 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the roasted peanuts, cinnamon, and salt until the peanuts are evenly coated. Scrape the caramel mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread in an even layer. Let stand until the brittle is hardened, about 20 minutes.
Break off 4 medium-size pieces of peanut brittle. Place the remaining brittle in a resealable plastic bag and roll with a rolling pin to crush the brittle into small pieces.
In a medium bowl, whisk the sweetened condensed milk with the dissolved instant coffee. In another medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream with the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar at high speed until softly whipped.
Scoop the ice cream into 4 bowls and drizzle with the milky coffee. Sprinkle with the crushed peanut brittle and top with a generous dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with the reserved pieces of peanut brittle and serve at once.

Come in and enjoy 15% off of any bag of Tanzanian Peaberry during June (in-store only). From the slopes of Mount Kili comes a light-bodied but sweetly acidic and wonderfully aromatic coffee. Its intense sweet berry flavor is softened by delicious fruit and wine-like overtones. “Tanzanian Peaberry is a very interesting coffee bean. It is formed in a distinct way,” says owner Rose.
Peaberry, or caracoli, is a type ofcoffee bean that originated from Northern Tanzania. Usually the fruit of thecoffee plant forms as two halves of a bean inside of one cherry, on occasion only one of the two seeds gets fertilized so nothing compresses it. The orpea-shaped bean is referred to as Peaberry. Only about 5% of all coffee beans harvested are this type.
Venture the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro through a cup of coffee. Tanzanian Peaberry is a striking flavor that creates a coffee adventure on your tongue. If you have never tried it, this is a great time to join us and get a cup!
Memorial Day is much more than an extended weekend and a chance to cookout with friends and family. It is a chance to honor our heroes, those who sacrificed their lives serving our country. Memorial Day came to be after more than 500,000 soldiers on both sides lost their lives during the Civil War. A time like no other in this nation. Many events are held on this special day to celebrate and honor the men and women who fought for our county.
There is an annual National Memorial Day Parade held in Washington, D.C. and it is an opportunity for people to honor those who devoted so much of themselves for our country. The event commemorates those who served in uniform from the American Revolution to Operation Iraqi Freedom. This spectacular event also serves to educate the public about the significance of the day. Events such as this one are held in communities across the nation.
Café Kili would like to time the time to honor the men and women who died for our county as well as those who have and still are fighting for our freedom. There will be celebrations across the county honoring our service members this weekend. Check your local newspaper to learn more about the ceremonies, parades and other events near you. Make this Memorial Day more than just a cookout and a day off from work.
Remember to reflect on the intended purpose of Memorial Day and take the time out this weekend to:
Visit a memorial site
Visit a memorial museum
Honor a Veteran with a tribute book
Call a veteran and just let them know how much you appreciate their sacrifices

The arts are a huge part of what makes our Cafe what it is. We love to share with you art from our home like jewelry, carvings, and music every day. On Thursdays we invite you to share your art with us. Family friendly artists from all over Tampa Bay come out and share their art with the community. We have seen so many amazing soloists and groups ranging from blue grass to jazz and writers who share their poetry. We think Open Mic Night is one of the most fun nights in the Cafe! We provide the microphones and sound equipment and you bring the music. Join us this Thursday at 7pm and share your talent!
