Athan's Bakery - Multiple Locations: $5 for $10 Worth of Authentic Artisan Coffee, Pastries, and More at Athan's Bakery

Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock and 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 authentic artisan coffee, pastries and more at either of Athan's Bakery's two area locations, in Brookline or Brighton.

Athan's Bakery provides the comforts of a cozy nook with the stimulus of an active, conversational atmosphere. Aside from serving its signature baklava, which is worthy of happy weeps, both Athan's Bakery cafés boast a medley of nibble- and dunk-worthy menu items such as 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 lunch-friendly cold caprese sandwiches ($5.50), lightly tossed blue Waldorf salads built from apples, celery, golden raisins, walnuts, gorgonzola, and cranberry dressing drizzled and swirled over iceberg lettuce ($6.75), and many other freshly arranged edibles. 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.
