Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge languorous fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat. For $5, today's Groupon to Caffé Brioso strews the streets with $10 worth of breakfast pastries, custom paninis, Oregon-roasted coffee, and other locally sourced sustenance. Caffé Brioso serves breakfast and lunch all day and also has free WiFi.
Caffé Brioso's coffees are rich and flavorful, delicately roasted by Bellatazza in Bend, Oregon, to fulfill each bean's sweet potential. This charming spot's menu also offers infused leaf drinks from Dragonfly Chai and Tao of Tea as well as baked goods from local yum-station Marsee. Pick up a breakfast pastry ($1–$2.50) to go with your espresso or fit inside your favorite chullo hat. If you get too hopped up on sugar and caffeine, this veritable apothecary can balance your humors with a pint of local beer or a glass of wine.
Making a sandwich at home is often limited by lack of a panini press or lack of desire to clean a panini press. For $5, Caffé Brioso will concoct your dream panini from your choice of bread, one meat, one cheese, and unlimited toppings. Put your prosciutto and provolone on focaccia, or decorate your bagel with turkey and havarti. Heart-healthy whole wheat or carb-conscious tortillas encase chicken or ham with mozzarella or Muenster. Load your creation up with as many of Caffé Brioso's delicious toppings as befits your desire, from artichoke-jalapeño sauce, hummus, and basil pesto to marionberry preserves and sun-dried tomatoes.
