Almost as pleasurable as a restaurant's food are the little rituals that go along with it: perusing the menu, anticipating the meal, and hiding under the table and grabbing passing waiters by their ankles. Drink in the whole experience with this Groupon.

The breakfast and lunch menus include toasted Nutella-and-pear sandwiches ($5), lox bagels ($9), butternut-squash salads ($10), bavarian grilled cheeses with housemade raspberry jam and spiced walnuts ($8.75), and west african barbecue burgers topped with gorgonzola and a spiced berbere-tamarind sauce ($12).
When walking down the stairs into the Channel Café, guests may not be clear as to whether they are entering an art gallery, restaurant, or a friend's swanky apartment. Paintings, sculptures, pictures of Angela Lansbury, and other perfect works of art fill the spacious dining room as natural light floods in through street-level windows beneath the high ceiling. The basement eatery owned by seasoned chef Tammie Watson and baker Joyce Parlapiano takes a simple, locally sourced approach to cooking while still creating eclectic dishes that fit in alongside artsy neighbors in the Fort Point Channel district. Espresso drinks and loose-leaf teas pair well with house-made granola or egg-and-potato-filled breakfast wraps, and a curated beer and wine selection livens up seasonal salads and burgers topped with a West African barbecue sauce.
The 5-spice salmon salad is a really great, healthy lunch -- awesome portion, and delicious!Jules H.
