Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock 'n' roll, yin and yang, and bald eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of artisan coffee, pastries, and more at Athan's Bakery, with two area locations in Brookline and Brighton.

Both of Athan's cozy nosh nooks activate lively conversation and happy weeps with an array of nibble- and dunk-worthy menu items, including signature baklava, scones ($1.75), strudels ($2.75), and chocolate croissants ($2.25). In Brighton, the café's kitchen extends its relishing reach to entrees, and both locations offer freshly arranged, lunch-friendly edibles such as cold caprese sandwiches ($5.50) and lightly tossed blue waldorf salads, wherein apples, celery, golden raisins, walnuts, and gorgonzola crumbles dance under a drizzle of cranberry dressing ($6.75). Bring along a classmate, married mate, or first date, and share a few bites of baklava, a few bits of news, and a few simultaneous blinks.

Athan's Bakery

Five decades ago, Kirio Pantelis wheeled a wooden cart around Kalamata, Greece, peddling syrupy sweets to locals. Today, his son and daughter-in-law oversee the American patisserie and café that evolved from these humble roots, nestled in both Brookline and Brighton. The bakery pays homage to its heritage with walnut-studded cakes and tarts that echo back to communal baking in wood-burning Greek ovens, though the shop draws from all over Europe for luxurious ingredients such as chocolate genoise, poached Turkish apricots, and Belgian cocoa. Puffed éclairs, petits fours, and fruit tartlets evoke the patisseries of Paris, and the bakery’s from-scratch gelato transports tasters to Italy without the hassle of concentrating hard enough to teleport.

Along with these sugary delicacies, the Brighton location also dishes up savory, Mediterranean-inspired fare at a café with marble tabletops and loft ceilings. Diners here fork into cold poached salmon, munch on paninis layered with gruyere or house orange-scented sausage, and savor cold sandwiches filled with roasted pancetta.
