Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking meters. Indulge in savory streetside fare with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of sandwiches, pastries, and beverages at Cherry Bean Coffee.
At Cherry Bean Coffee, amiable baristas energize patrons with morning doses of coffee and a menu of deli fare for breakfast and lunch. Customers can jolt weary minds back to full vigilance with a tall cappuccino ($2.65) or savor the white-chocolate tinge of a tall white mocha ($3.10). Visitors can practice juggling with seven varieties of muffins ($2.10 each) or fill up for lunch with a full roast-beef sandwich assembled with a choice of four cheeses, seven condiments, nine sauces, and four breads ($6.25). Studious patrons can utilize free WiFi and ample private study rooms, while a drive-thru window accommodates commuters and horse-saddled cattle herders alike.
