Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your day with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a $25 punch card good for coffee, drinks, and café fare at Café Tropical. This punch card is valid in $5 increments to be used over five visits.
Café Tropical enlivens palates with the made-from-scratch treats and espresso-based drinks of its tropically infused menu. Demolish daily to-do lists with the caffeinated kick of a rich, creamy espresso drink such as the café expresso ($1.75 for a single, $2.75 for a double) or the spicy zip of a mexican hot chocolate ($2.75 for a medium), both concocted using freshly grated chocolate. Bodies can get their fresh fruit fix in the sweet sips of a tropical fruit shake ($3.50 for a large), or fresh-squeezed orange, carrot, or grapefruit juice ($3.50 for a medium, $4 for a large), or in decadent bites of tres leches ($3.25 for a slice), strawberry short cake ($3.25 for a slice), or guava-cream-cheese pie, with its flaky pastry crust and guava jelly made from fruit cultivated in Philadelphia's subtropical suburbs ($2.75 for a slice).
While noshing on a classic cobb salad with romaine lettuce, bacon crumbles, and grilled chicken ($8.50), egg croissants ($3.25, add bacon, turkey, or ham for $1), or a variety of sandwiches on freshly baked bread, such as the classic cuban with ham, pork and swiss cheese ($6), guests can surf the web courtesy of the shop's free WiFi. Or, take a break from cyber-reality to release cares under the calming influences of the Caribbean-inspired décor, which includes live plants, handmade balloon lights, and throw pillows stuffed with delicious jerk chicken.
