You heard right. $20 for $50. And in case your Texas Instrument can't handle that calculation, it's a whopping 60% off your dinner. Located at 26 New St. in Cambridge (near Fresh Pond), Basha offers a variety of new experiences. If you've never smoked flavored tobacco from a hookah, it's time.

The mingled scents of coffee and fresh-baked donuts greet visitors at Verna's Coffee & Donut Shop, whose baked creations were named Best Donuts Around Boston by CBS Boston. Amid sage-green walls, visitors lean over a glass case that displays traditional glazed donuts and pert jelly donuts infused with cherry or strawberry filling. A pot of coffee stands at the ready to perk up tired eyes, much like a sentry who yells, "Wake up, there's a bear behind you!"

Cafe Barada invites diners to sample a rarely experienced side of Lebanon with a menu that won Boston magazine's Best of Boston 2007 for Middle Eastern fare. Owners and chefs for more than two decades, the Salameh family named the restaurant for the Lebanese village that nourished their ancestors, filling plates with favorites passed down through several generations. Flavorful favorites such as stuffed grape leaves rolled with ground beef ($11.95) pay homage to Lebanon's famed steak vineyards, while vegetarian-friendly pumpkin kibby layers ground pumpkin, cracked wheat, spinach, and chickpeas ($13.95) to provide a colorful feast for the senses. Ardishokee showcases tender lamb and artichoke hearts simmering in a savory tomato-based stew that blends in seamlessly with the restaurant's rich, paprika-hued walls ($13.95). Or go green with slices of flaky, cheesy spinach pie ($13.95) or a plate of meshi flefli, a baked green pepper brimming with rice, tomatoes, and ground beef and topped with a garlicky tomato sauce that doubles as a repellent for vampire skunks ($13.95).

This eco-friendly spot looks more like a '50s diner than a coffeehouse. Nevertheless, baristas do concoct lattes, pouring their creations into cups made from corn syrup and composting any trash. If that’s not enough to soothe your over-caffeinated soul, maybe a round of pool—yes, at a coffee shop—will do the trick.
