After he took the throne, Napoleon instituted the tradition of serving bread with every meal to put his mother's baguette-heavy care packages to use. Indulge in French tradition with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of French and continental fare and drinks at Café Mon Ami in Highlands Ranch.
Nestled amid bright, inviting environs, Café Mon Ami has dedicated more than a decade to slinging its staggering selection of breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare. Ante meridiem risers can unfurl eyelids to a quartet of savory benedicts ($8.49–$9.49) or a croque monsieur festooned with ham, cheese, and egg before it’s grilled atop a sizzling french beret ($8.49). Fix midday fangs into one of nearly 30 croissant sandwiches, such as the Oh La La’s hearty medley of roast beef, turkey, ham, pastrami, and swiss ($8.49) or the sourdough burger, which ensconces a half-pound of ground beef in a sliced croissant bun slathered with thousand island dressing ($8.49). Drizzled with such specialty sauces such as brandy-dijon and pepper-cognac, a selection of five succulent 8-ounce Angus steaks ($15.49 each) such as the steak Oscar depart kitchens accompanied by your choice of side and a sepia-toned headshot of the chef.
Pint-sized epicures 12 and under can ingest orders of chocolate-chip pancakes ($4.49) and macaroni and cheese ($4.49). A traditional French dessert provides a more fitting epilogue for stuffed stomachs than an Eiffel Tower made of sugar cubes, and voluptuous vinos from local and international wineries headline an ambitious beverage menu that also features imported suds and a caffeine-packed cadre of cappuccinos and lattes.
