Though breakfast is regularly celebrated for being the most important meal of the day, it’s also regularly attacked by teams of children aiming to steal its bacon. Snatch early day eats without having to sneak with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of coffee, bagels, sandwiches, and more at Cafetal.
Cafetal's menu is fully stocked with plates of breakfast and lunch fare, spun like vinyl with distinct Latin flare. Taste buds are tickled awake with the veggie breakfast burrito, an amalgam of eggs, cheese, hash browns, bell peppers, spinach, and onion rolled into a food tube with creamy avocado and spicy salsa ($5.25). Lunchers can soak up rays on the outdoor patio while enjoying a Mexican torta, a toasted Mexican sweet roll housing ham, queso fresco, onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, and avocado ($5.50). The café's food is coupled with an array of potables, including the Mexicano, a steamy blend of espresso and Mexican hot chocolate ($3.50+), also available iced ($3.75+), blended ($4.25+), or in a doubled-strawed beer helmet. Typists can practice one-handed surfing on the eatery's free Wi-Fi, occupying their leftover digits with a scoop of Marianne’s ice cream ($2.25).
