The morning ritual of breakfast mirrors the elegant cosmic dance of dawn, when the sun awakes to crack and scramble comets and then drink the Milky Way straight from the carton. Similarly rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of breakfast and lunch fare at Cabin 12 on Pandora Street.
Cabin 12 satisfies breakfasting, brunching, and lunching palates with creatively spun dishes stamped with equally whimsical monikers. Eight eggs-benedict-based "Benny" creations highlight the breakfast menu, including traditional takes such as the Canadian, dressed with tender back bacon and mounted atop a horse ($10.50), alongside adventurous interpretations such as the Kobayashi Maru, a steak Benny with mushrooms and onions ($13.50). All come topped with homemade hollandaise and saddled with hash browns. For a hair of the scurvy-immune dog, add a taste-bud-rousing mimosa ($3.50).
The lunch menu sports the Birkenstock, which slaps a marinated tofu patty, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, creamy garlic dressing, and an onion ring on 12-grain bread perfectly contoured to support the arches of the hand ($10). Cabin 12's funky, eclectic atmosphere sports rustic tile floors balanced by blue, yellow, and red walls, a laid-back place perfect for enjoying a bottomless organic coffee ($2.50) or a Numi organic tea ($2.50). Though diners can gawk at such high-tech decorative accents as an old-timey radio and oversized calculator, they are advised that Cabin 12 is cash only and closes at 3 p.m.
