  • Donut Professor Express
    The Donut Professor uses locally sourced ingredients to create fresh donuts, pastries, and muffins every morning. With 37 varieties of donuts ($0.99 each; $9.29 per dozen) ranging from garden-variety glazed to elusive vanilla peanut, The Donut Professor offers a full catalog of fried, doughy treats. Éclairs, fritters, and cinnamon rolls ($1.19) satisfy partisans of pastries without holes. All locations open at 6 a.m., mere minutes after fresh donuts come into being, giving night-based vigilantes and day-faring caped heroes a place to eat while comparing notes. If the full amount of the Groupon is not used in one visit, The Donut Professor will issue a gift card with the remaining balance.

  • 84th Street Cafe
    Whipping up tasty bites made fresh from itch with all-natural ingredients, 84th Street Café provides a neighborhood spot for home-style meals without serving vinyl siding with a side of roof shingles. A welcoming ambience soothes hungry nerves and allows for laid-back taste-bud stimulation akin to licking batteries on a Tempur-Pedic bed. Amid a relaxing, window-wrapped atmosphere, patrons can sample a wide variety of big-portioned menu options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and every imaginary meal in between. Try a tongue-tantalizing breakfast burrito platter with chorizo, fruit, and hash browns ($7.25), Luis’s famous spicy pork chili with a dish of rainbow sherbet ($4.25, lunch; $5.25, dinner), or beef pot pie topped with crispy cheddar ($8.50, $12.50). Drinks such as wine and desserts like the cheesecake of the day ($4.25) pair with each meal much better than a clingy barnacle.

  • Heartland Cafe Omaha
    Named business of the year in 2010 by Heritage Nebraska, patrons sit down at the Heartland Cafe for breakfast and lunch amid traces of local history inside a building constructed in 1919.

  • The Tea Smith
    The Tea Smith owner Tim Smith searches out loose-leaf teas from all over the world—and he says he has to consciously limit himself as he fills the shops' stock of about 150 teas. But it wasn't long ago that Tim didn't even like tea. "I thought tea was brown water and a bag," he confesses. It took a gift for his wife to change that. "I was traveling for business, it was around Valentine's day, and I was married long enough to know that you don't come home empty-handed," he says. So he bought her some loose-leaf tea and the right accessories to brew it. "She made me try it, and it was surprising," he says. "It was not that stuff in a bag. It had some character and some taste to it." He began researching, and realized that tea—already the world’s most widely consumed beverage after water—was experiencing a resurgence in the United States. While many tea spots have British or Japanese themes, Tim decided to open a tea shops with a "comfortable contemporary" vibe, where people could enjoy hot, iced, and bubble teas with friends. For at-home brewing, visitors can shop for classic teas such as Earl Grey, sample more unusual flavors such as the “Iron Goddess of Mercy” (an oolong), or browse seasonal blends such as pumpkin spice, cranberry cream, and fireside chat. The shops also stocks travel tea mugs, teapots equipped with infuser baskets, and unglazed Chinese YiXing clay pots that enhance the tea’s flavor. Tim knows that many people who walk into the shop are unfamiliar with loose-leaf tea and may not be sure what they'll like—which is why he only hires tea enthusiasts. "Part of their training is to come in and drink each of the teas, and make notes on the flavor profiles," he says. That way, the staff can recommend blends suited to each customer's palate, rather than having to analyze a Rorschach tea-blot test. In addition to events including an annual blending contest, they also run periodic Tea 101 sessions that introduce attendees to the "history, the myths, the legends, and the lore of tea," says Tim.
