What You'll Get
Unlike cinematic love scenes, cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cafe lunch fare at Chelsea's Tea and Gifts.
Chelsea's Tea and Gifts dishes up a palatable menu of casual lunch and brunch fare in a quaint, Victorian-inspired setting. A rich Monte Cristo sandwich enrobes batter-dipped Texas toast in dustings of powdered sugar and maple syrup ($10.95), and tomato, basil pesto, balsamico, and mixed cheeses play a unique rendition of the classic grilled cheese’s flavor notes ($9.95). Made-from-scratch soups du jour ($3.95 cup/$5.25 bowl) flood bellies with a dizzying flavor rotation, befriending bread-bordered comestibles in a soup-and-sandwich combo ($11.95). The artisanal cheese and fruit board matches fragrant fromages from the Asheville Farmer's Market with fresh fruit, country-pork terrine, and grilled bread with basil pesto ($12.95). Seasonal Sunday brunch graces tabletops from March through December, and lunch makes an appearance Monday–Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Country-inspired Victorian décor, such as floral tablecloths, precious Victorian chintz, and the calm light of shaded wall sconces, creates a comfortable dining atmosphere, and a gold-bordered mirror lets tea sippers check behind them for MI5 spies.
