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 savory streetside fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of internationally inspired sandwiches, salads, and more at Aristo Cafe. Aristo serves freshly made continental treats and eats in the stateside confines of Boston's financial district. Stop in for a breakfast bite of the Bonjour, a mount of egg and melty cheddar on your choice of croissant or ciabatta ($5.25). Lunch and dinner options include cold sandwiches such as Pointing the Brie, wherein partygoers brie, turkey, and green apple cut a rug with herb mayo on a freshly baked French baguette ($8.25). Hot sandwiches such as the croque monsieur—a dapper ensemble of ham and gruyère cheese on fashionably rustic ciabatta ($8.25)—warm bellies with classic flavors. Compliment nummy noshables with the café's signature Norman Love hot chocolate, available in five different light and dark cocoa profiles perfect for toasting dining companions or toasting toes.
- I'm really lucky to work around the corner from this place. Their sandwiches are so good and really fresh. I love watching them crack the eggs and choose really fantastic cheese for my breakfast sandwich – Jennifer S., Yelp
- This is European style where the sandwiches are made with fresh ingredients and meant to savor not gobble. – Daniel C., Yelp
