Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking meters. Indulge in flavorful streetside fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of upscale comfort food and drinks at Antique Cafe on 26th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue.
Boasting a warmly inviting, light-infused interior in its prime spot in bustling Chelsea, Antique Cafe brings an Old World charm to its cozy surroundings and rotating dishes. The friendly, knowledgeable staff serves up weekend brunch and all three key meals of the day except for dinfast. Send lunch appetites swimming upstream toward the hearty salmon burger ($13), or transport dinner hankerings to the South Pacific with the Maui tacos, a medley of citrus-tinged chicken breast surfing on a wave of grilled pineapple, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream, then wrapped in a balmy beach towel of flour tortillas ($15). With its varied menu and artful surroundings, this savory site is an ideal mealtime destination or an engaging place to seek respite from lurking flea-market exterminators.
