America forged its identity during the 1950s space race, a global contest to land on the moon and flame-broil a moist burger over the sun. Commemorate America's achievements with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get $20 worth of edible Americana at Cafe 50's.
Entering its second decade, Cafe 50's boasts a menu abundant with American staples for every meal served amid midcentury memorabilia. All-day breakfasts spotlight omelets such as the American Bandstand ($9.79), whose three eggs sang backup for Foghorn Leghorn before forming an ensemble with bacon and tomato. A Monte Cristo sandwich ($8.95) tops french toast in turkey, ham, and two kinds of cheese to warm stomachs frozen by 46 gourmet milk shakes ($4.59–$4.79). Chefs reverently adorn the cheeseburger ($7.29) with lettuce, tomato, onion, and mayo after cooking the patty to medium heat and performing a 21-teakettle salute.

With its bright neon signs, Cafe 50's glows like a landlocked lighthouse, signaling to travelers looking for a blend of mid-20th century dining and decor. Breakfast fires all day long on their stainless steel grill, alongside steaks, hamburgers, and grilled sandwiches. In between bites, diners can sing along to their favorite song thanks to jukebox consoles at every booth. Cafe 50's also crafts exactly 42 deluxe milk shake varieties including chocolate banana, strawberry cheesecake, and butterscotch bonanza. Meanwhile, turning glass carousels at the front counter trap the smell of freshly baked pies, acting like time capsules on a planet populated by giant noses.
