Sandwiches tend to adapt to their locale, as demonstrated when southerners bundle them with brisket, the British add cool cucumbers, and astronauts slather them with Tang. Taste the Spanish side of sandwiches with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Spanish fare at Cafe Madrid in Oakland.
Cafe Madrid excites palates with a traditional lineup of Spanish deli selections alongside creative coffees and cold beverages. Embark on transatlantic flavor treks atop the menu’s roasted eggplant sandwich ($8), just the way Columbus did, or bundle a bocadillo with a choice of gourmet meats, cheeses, and zesty condiments ($7.50). Early risers can stop by on morning commutes to employ teeth in the disassembling of tomato-topped andalusian toast ($3) and pair it with a choice of coffee concoctions such as café con leche ($3) or find a tempting treat for after-work outings by sipping sangria by the glass ($6), pitcher ($13), or hollowed-out gold brick.
Futuristic lamps hang from the café's high ceilings to illuminate sunflower-yellow walls as a large Picasso-esque mural demands regular feedings of tapas. The sunny corner space sits alongside the Paramount Theatre, allowing diners to deck taste buds with Spanish seasonings before attending exciting evening performances.
