Three to try: Kalavalanche, Vietnamese and bubble
1. Out in historic Galena in the northwest corner of Illinois, Kaladi's Coffee Bar (309 S. Main St.) serves something called a Kalavalanche, which is a mouthful to say but awfully refreshing to drink. As is often the case, there are several flavor variations (mocha, white chocolate, cookies and cream …), but I go with the most basic one, the cappuccino, which is smooth, light, more icy than frothy and boasting an assertive coffee flavor.
