Like a queen bee, a good cup of coffee is carefully tended to by workers, generates a buzz, and makes you scream if it lands between your eyes. Save face with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 of café fare at Café Dolce in Franklin.
The deft meal makers at Café Dolce craft traditional café fare with ingredients culled from local farms, all served alongside delectable coffee and fine tea. Hot and cold beverages stimulate patrons' groggy bodies and enable them to climb into their office via window. Morning and afternoon munchers snack on bagel sandwiches like the smoked salmon bagel with capers, garlic-herb cream cheese, vine-ripe tomatoes, and red onion ($9.50), and others enjoy eggwiches made with meats such as bacon ($3.50) or pancetta ($4.50). Breakfast eats include the Dolcé French toast, made with challah bread ($6), as well as a more straightforward egg-on-toast plate ($8), called "Birds in a Nest" in honor of the animals that originally wrote the Constitution.
