Like a favorite fairytale, the perfect cup of coffee encapsulates warmth, dark undertones, and plenty of magic beans. Enjoy the enchanting nature of java with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of café fare at Amocat Cafe in Tacoma.
Amocat brews up a bevy of coffees and teas to accompany a menu brimming with breakfast fare, grilled paninis, and salads. Steps regain their heel-clicking pep with espresso drinks ($2.25–$5.05) brewed from custom roasted Valhalla coffee and Mad Hat teas ($1.50 a cup) available in a flavorful roster that includes Creamsicle, Red Flower Earl Grey, and Egyptian chamomile. Rouse yawning mandibles from their dreams of showing up unprepared for pop quizzes with a scrumptious breakfast sandwich ($3.50) or wrap hands around a grilled Mambo panini ($4.99) showcasing chicken breast that stirs tongue buds into a twitterpated tizzy with the help of artichoke hearts, smoked gouda, and pesto mayonnaise. Amocat Cafe's décor boasts an ever-changing display of artwork from up-and-coming artists and the eatery's occasional live music feeds ravenous cochleae like q-tips fashioned from spun sugar.
