A hungry stomach is like a wild bear—if you don't feed it, it will let out a monstrous roar before illegally plundering a stranger's picnic basket. Appease untamed digestive systems with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of dinner fare at The Original Cafe Eleven in St. Augustine.
Cafe Eleven's cooks craft a dinner menu of salads, sandwiches, meaty entrees, and vegetarian spreads within a sleek noshery near the beach that also boasts an outside dining area. Muffle the atonal grumbles of stomach crooners with a tamarind salad, a lush bed of mixed greens, pulled turkey, peanuts, oranges, carrots, and rice noodles soused in a tamarind plum vinaigrette ($8.25) or an herbivore-friendly hummus platter ($7.95). Sandwiches such as the brie, ham, and apple-laden Vermont melt ($7.95) make delicious accouterments to empty hands, and the meatloaf ($9.95), pesto-spinach lasagna ($10.95), and cucumber-dill salmon ($12.95) require a fork to enjoy and romantically catapult into the agape mouths of epicurean dinner dates. After quelling appetites with a leisurely meal, reboot boogie batteries with a shot of espresso ($2) or a chalice of french-vanilla latte ($4–$4.50) before moon walking to the tunes of a local or nationally touring band during one of Cafe Eleven's frequent live merriments.
