Without cafés, society would not be blessed with great works of art like Ernest Hemingway's A Moveable Feast or bored child's sugar-packet fresco. Delve into the creative, coffee-colored world of cafés with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of fresh-baked pastries, gourmet sandwiches and salads, and organic coffees at The Café Olé.
The Café Olé complements a menu—replete with fresh pastries, gourmet snacks, and organic drip coffees—with the cozy confines of its café and the pleasant expanse of its sidewalk patio. Unlimited fresh-roasted coffee ($2.25) entices java lovers to pair their drinks with the day's fresh-baked pastry ($2.75) or a plate of huevos rancheros that heaps scrambled eggs onto a bed of corn tortillas delectably tucked with cheese, chilies, and pinto beans, and garnished with a steel spur ($7.75). For lunch, served 10:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m., The Café Olé serves up fresh soups ($4.50 / cup) and organic salads ($7.50+). The café’s savory meatball sandwich arrives on grilled panini bread with homemade italian meatballs or a teddy bear in a meat suit, reposed under tomato sauce, mozzarella, and parmigiano cheese ($8.95).
Café Olé nurtures an ambiance that is both creatively stimulating and amicably mellow. Bask in the sun at a table along the sidewalk café, or duck behind the plush drapery inside, where local artisans' work invites patrons to gaze and recall the invaluable life lessons learned from the color wheel in kindergarten art class.
