Putting a man on the moon was briefly considered mankind's greatest achievement, until Neil Armstrong invented sliced bread. Savor civilization's finest creation with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a meal for two at MOCHA-Monterey Oaks Coffee House Austin (up to a $17 total value). The meal includes:
- Two sandwiches or salads (up to a $6.50 value each).
- Two drinks worth up to $2 each, including soft drinks, coffee, and tea.
The expert baristas at MOCHA-Monterey Oaks Coffee House Austin heat up fair-trade coffee and espresso drinks and sate appetites with a menu of fresh sandwiches and salads made from local ingredients. The chicken-salad sandwich stars oven-baked chicken breast buoyed by a supporting cast of dried fruit, nuts, green onions, and seasonings projected onto a ciabatta bun. A schmear of spinach-artichoke spread spackles mushrooms, shredded carrot, red bell pepper, and onion to the veggie spinach sandwich’s focaccia-bread foundation. The mexi-cobb salad’s romaine-lettuce leaves conceal cheddar cheese, black beans, corn, and other vegetables from a hard-boiled egg, which badgers the avocado ranch dressing into spilling all of its creamy secrets.
Mornings brighten up with a shot of rich espresso delivered straight or supplemented with steamed milk and frothy foam in the form of a café latte. Baristas tone down the house’s hot-tempered joe to forge tall glasses of iced coffee, which can be poured on friends in extreme cases where caffeine is unable to rouse them. Patrons order food and drinks at the wooden counter and enjoy meals at square tables nestled between low, yellow walls. Outside, a fenced-in seating area frames metal picnic tables next to a playground.
