Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock 'n'roll, yin and yang, and bald-eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of coffee drinks and bistro fare at Altamont Coffee Café in Altamont.
Baristas at Altamont Coffee Café froth fresh-ground coffee drinks made from locally roasted beans, and dish out quiches, crepes, and sandwiches stuffed with healthy local ingredients. The bistro's menu tells the savory story of a daily vegetarian quiche ($6.95) and a rotation of fresh fillers. Spicy curry powder balances sweet mango chutney in the chicken curry wrap ($6.95), and the caprese panini unites basil, tomato, and mozzarella on a crispy baguette ($5.95). Fresh off the griddle and confident, the blueberry crepe ($3.95) steps into the ring with a pastry chef who lands blow after blueberry blow as orange marmalade shouts encouragement from the corner and sour-cream maple syrup watches with an expression bordering on concern.
Pair provender with a sweet-flavored latte made with organic espresso ($3.65/12 oz.), a creamy chai latte ($2.50/12 oz.), or french-press coffee ($1.50/12 oz.), which opens drowsy eyes with gritty Parisian news reports. With warm orange walls, free WiFi, and an HDTV, the bistro encourages diners to stay and chat over local Chris's Coffee brews and begs Mother Nature to stay cool, minimizing waste with ceramic mugs for dine-in guests and a travel-mug program.
