Meals made of fresh ingredients boast high nutrient content, big flavor, and a decreased likelihood of containing pieces of neon plastic eggshell. Crunch into appropriately crispy cafe fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh Mediterranean and French eats at Angelina Cafe in the East Village.
Wooden church benches and kitschy wall art line the salmon-hued walls of Angelina Cafe, inviting hungry neighborhood crowds to relax while sampling the fresh, French-infused Mediterranean menu. Nestled cozily in the café or out on the small, Parisian–style patio, patrons can nosh on a variety of vegetarian dishes, including the Mediterranean salad, teeming with crunchy greens, creamy hummus, feta, black olives, and hard-boiled eggs ($8.50). Regulars salivate over house specialties of flavorful steak au poivre, smothered in a spicy brown-peppercorn sauce ($17.95), and Anne's canadian-bacon crepe, so satiated with provolone, swiss, or mozzarella cheese ($8.50) that its swallowers are oft inspired to seduce fellow diners with hummed love songs.
