Although many inventions have been hailed as the "greatest thing since sliced bread," none of these other innovations have been as popular as bread among the pigeon community. Please pigeons and technophiles alike with the cutting-edge loaf technology of today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sandwiches, pastries, and more at Bread & Company, located in Everett.
Bread & Company crafts scores of Brazilian- and European-influenced edibles alongside coffees and teas from around the globe, showcasing more than 300 unique pastries, sandwiches, and soups daily. Guests drop in as early as 6 a.m. seven days a week to study the sweet geometry of a belgian waffle ($5.50) and the tasteful synergy of the ham-and-cheese omelette ($6.25). Meanwhile, fried appetizers such as the fried pastel ($2.95, filled with beef or cheese) flaunt Southern-Hemisphere street flair. Or dig into the culinary history of Italy without broasting a bust of Nero by gobbling dinner plates of chicken-broccoli ziti ($8.95). Meals can be sweetly capped off with tropically kissed coconut-cake slices ($4.25) or crispy, fried churros ($2.95).
In addition to its diverse menu, Bread & Company boasts 1,614 square feet of space, lined with Euro-inspired décor. Feel free to sip espresso ($2–$2.50) and engage in sock-puppet conversations around the café's fireplace and granite circle tables until the café closes at 11 p.m. nightly.
