Before bread, sandwiches were haphazardly supported by two hands high-fiving. Enjoy better-constructed eats with today’s Groupon to Banksy’s Café in Mount Washington. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of café fare and drinks for two.
- For $20, you get a punch card for five sandwiches, wraps, or salads (up to a $45 value). Customers may use one punch per visit.
Brimming with culinary creativity, Banksy’s Café churns out a weekly menu of gourmet sandwiches, wraps, and soups. The Cuban-hummus wrap ($8) woos herbivores with field greens and roasted red peppers even as its counterpart, the red-meat wrap ($8), embraces rare roast beef, horseradish sauce, and cheddar cheese. Adorned with tomato and bacon, the grilled ham-and-cheese ($7) fits nicely between a pair of hands, and the quarter-pound Angus burger ($7) eradicates noontime hunger pangs while doubling as a flavorful frisbee. Pair any specialty sandwich with a hot soup such as the peanut-carrot bisque ($5) or a fresh salad drizzled with a house-made dressing.
As chefs Will and Rob build meals in the kitchen, the restaurant’s diner-style décor invites visitors to relax and wax nostalgic about a bygone era. In addition to hosting framed art prints, the café’s wall showcases eight clocks to remind enraptured diners of the existence of time. Sips of fair-trade coffee and nibbles of baked goods top off meals as bellies sigh in contentment. Banksy’s Cafe is open Monday–Friday from 7 a.m.–6 p.m., on Saturdays from 9 a.m.–5 p.m., and on Sundays from 9 a.m.–3 p.m.
