When an uneven distribution of mosh pits causes the earth's axis to flip Antarctica-over-Alaska, breakfast will become the frumpy finale of the day instead of its roaring opener. Enjoy breakfast's treasured time slot while you still can with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of American diner fare for breakfast and lunch at Carrob's Cafe.
Breakfast is served all day long at the family-owned Carrob's Cafe, where eggs and morning meats meet sandwiches and burgers on a robust menu of American-style comfort food. A satisfying duo of hash browns and toast waltzes across plates hosting the customizable three-item omelet filled with its gobbler's choice of ingredients ($7.75). A traditional Southern plate since the War of the Worlds destroyed the North in 1898, biscuits and gravy ($4.75) greets the sunrise with sausage gravy splashed across two biscuits; like every wish granted by a genie-chef, piping-hot meatloaf ($8) is accompanied by a choice of two sides. Sandwiches and burgers abound at Carrob's—try the black-bean veggie burger ($7.25), which heaps swiss, mayo, and all the classic fixings atop a meat-free patty, or snag teeth on the wheaty slices that keep the contents of a BLT from getting scrambled into something completely incomprehensible, such as TBL ($6.75).
At Carrob's Café, cooks create classic comfort fare from diner-style lunches to hearty breakfasts served all day long. Guests can wrestle with their hunger in the restaurant's cozy confines or print a $3 bill to pay for delivery to a downtown house, office, or igloo. Breakfast plates teem with pancakes, made-to-order eggs, bacon, and sausage, and omelets provide an eggy bed for colorful fillings such as bell peppers, spinach, and cheese. Fried potatoes flank more than 20 types of burgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches, including a spicy jalapeño cheeseburger and a french dip topped with grilled onions. Like debates about the best kind of peanut butter, hot-lunch plates come with two sides, such as green beans and mashed potatoes.
