Coffee can cure a number of workplace maladies, including the grumpies, the Mondays, and the crippling lack of career goalsies. Perk up with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $6 for $12 worth of café food
- $12 for two pounds of coffee beans (a $23.99 value)
- $18 for three Groupons, each good for $12 worth of café food (a $36 value)
Visitors to the café can snack on paninis loaded with a quartet of cheeses ($5.49), salads tossed with cranberries, walnuts, and feta ($7.29), and ice-cream shakes made with Ghirardelli chocolate and a shot of espresso ($3.99). See the full café menu.
Café Brevé also offers coffee beans from places such as Guatemala or Costa Rica. The Groupon for two pounds of coffee beans is not valid for the organic Bravo Joe or the Jamaican blend beans.
The Café Brevé store is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., while the deli is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Being the first espresso bar in St. Louis had its drawbacks. When The Brevé Coffee Company opened its doors in 1995, the concept of a latte was unfamiliar to most residents in the downtown area, and the shop only made $58 its first day in business. But as owner Kevin Wiesehan and his wife added in flavorful small-batch-roasted coffee beans, a panini press, and savory café food, business started to boom. Brevé now has three locations throughout the St. Louis area.
In these coffee shops, baristas serve up expertly poured coffees alongside sandwiches, veggie wraps, and salads. Hand-dipped ice-cream treats with Ghirardelli chocolate, shots of house espresso, or foamy pours of root beer are both decadent and refreshing, much like waltzing with an ice sculpture of Fred Astaire.
