The morning ritual of breakfast mirrors the elegant cosmic dance of dawn, when the sun awakes to crack and scramble comets and then drink the Milky Way straight from the carton. Similarly rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of comfort fare for breakfast or lunch at Alexa’s Garden Café, located within Swansons Nursery.
Alexa’s Garden Café treats taste buds to a menu of comfort fare complemented by Caffé Vita java and the sights of lush greenery and a lively koi pond. Early risers can spin around a bat for 30 seconds before sampling a dizzying array of eggy dishes, such as the Veggie Benny, an english muffin stacked with poached eggs, tomato, and avocado doused in homemade hollandaise sauce ($8.95–$10.95). Six types of hearty oatmeal ($3.50–$5.95), whole-wheat pancakes ($6–$8), and a savory lox plate ($11.95) round out the breakfast bill of fare.
Midday munchers can chomp a protein-packed nosh that includes the chicken-curry croissant dotted with grapes and almonds ($9.25) and the old-fashioned burger ($8.50), a grilled organic all-beef patty crowned, like a child-prince, on a whole-wheat bun. The baby-greens salad, mingling with mandarin oranges, gorgonzola, and walnuts, arrives with a raspberry vinaigrette on the side ($7.50+). Alexa’s Garden Café affords visitors an escape from the hectic outside world in a greenery-lavished, kid-friendly environment devoid of copier machines.
