To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has the plague" and "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of salads, wraps, and more at Cafe 56, located in Mayfield Heights.
Cafe 56 entertains hardcore health fans with an impressive array of salads, backed by a selection of fast-serving soups, wraps, and sandwiches for pacifying enraged lunch-time tummies. Entertain a date with stories about your underwater tea party with the Kraken while diving into the Romantic Interlude ($6), a Greek salad with crumbled feta and Bermuda onions, served with oregano red-wine vinaigrette. If one yearns for a salad that exhibits brash coolness and impeccable vocals, then they'll look no further than Flank Sinatra ($6), where shredded mozzarella, marinated steak, and oven-roasted tomatoes produce the salad equivalent of a well-executed pop standard. Each salad comes with your choice of 16 kinds of dressing—traditionalists choose old standbys such as buttermilk ranch while experimental dressing explorers dabble with fat-free toasted sesame.
Bread-preferring diners can still find sustenance with Cafe 56's wraps and sandwiches, assembled with a choice of sourdough baguette, French batard, sundried-tomato wrap, and more. Veggie strivers can munch on the Wholesome sandwich ($8), stuffed to the brim with seasoned grilled vegetables, portobello mushrooms, and wild greens and deliciously embellished with a hot and cheesy side of vegetable chili ($5). Monday and Wednesday visitors can taste Cafe 56's spuds, imported from Idaho instead of from the conniving potato pickpockets in nearby Narnia.
