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 $12, you get a $25 coffee card valid for sandwiches, crêpes, and organic coffee at Cafe Felix, located inside the Metro Music & Book Store.
The café wing of the bookstore boasts a hip, university milieu appointed with eclectic vintage furnishings and a glossy gray wood stove. Attendant caffeine cognoscenti swill brews crafted from organic, free-trade roasts ($1.50–$2.25) or abscond with sacks of daily roasted beans by the single pound ($12) or half pound ($6). Additional stimulants—including mochas ($3.50–$4.25), café au lait ($2.50–$3), and chai tea ($3.75-$4.50)—ensure café-goers do not fall asleep while attempting to pin the tail on the Mona Lisa print.
Beyond their brewing capacities, baristas cradle French-style crêpe wrappers around savory and sweet breakfast and lunch fillings, such as spinach, bacon, and eggs ($9.95) or nutella ($4.95). A succession of sandwiches quells more domestic hunger pangs, with selections including the grilled cheese roasted with cheddar, feta, and tomatoes ($8.95) and the Turkey #1 with cranberry cream cheese ($9.95). Sippers and snackers lounge while art-adorned yellow and carnelian walls and the complimentary WiFi compete for their attention. This Groupon can be used over multiple visits, so surfers need not visit every website on the Internet in one sitting.
