Cafes are a nice place to munch a sandwich and sip on a drink while secretly plotting to overthrow the local government. Indulge in a caffeinated fantasy with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of cafe fare and drinks at Ambition Coffee House and Eatery in Schenectady.
Ambition Coffee House and Eatery tempts patrons to linger for hours at its bar or at the charming hodgepodge of tables and booths as they order from a menu packed with breakfast specialties, sandwiches, espressos, homemade gelato, and libations. Sink into a plush red chair beside the fireplace with an egg-and-cheese croissant ($3.50), or nosh on one of 16 specialty sandwiches, such as the Maryland-style crab cake on a grilled pita ($9). Green and yellow walls ensconce patrons as they sip martinis, wine, and specialty cappuccinos at the bar or around patterned tables. Ambition Coffee House and Eatery also hosts weekly live events and millennial tectonic-shift parties.
