A sandwich, like a wallet, safely contains its precious contents, fits comfortably into a back pocket, and is rarely found by the police once it's been stolen. Chomp bread-bound wealth with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of café fare at Café @ Artspace.
Café @ Artspace, a center celebrating a variety of artistic disciplines, serves up a menu of café-style lunch fare. A tomato-soup cup ($5) or bowl ($7) preps stomachs for a spring-citrus salad ($7), which mingles mandarin oranges and fresh berries with toasted pecans and poppy-seed dressing, or a turkey reuben sandwich, a turkey pastrami with silken folds of swiss cheese, kraut, and dijon mustard ($7.50). The shop's sandwich masters embrace customers' artistic visions with The Open Mind ($7), which lets one construct a mouthwatering masterpiece from the choice of breads, meats, spreads, and garnishes. While enjoying a slice of icebox pie ($4) or other daily dessert, diners can take advantage of free WiFi to web surf or practice mouse-click sonatas.
Café @ Artspace is open Mondays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. While eagerly anticipating their meals, guests may browse the adjacent giftspace for a selection of local paintings, sculptures, and jewelry available for purchase, though even the hungriest of clientele are discouraged from munching on still-life renderings of fruit bowls.
