After spending a night dreaming of steel children and living motorcycles, it takes a superbly beaned brew to usher the brain back into reality. Escape sleep’s chimeras with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee and baked goods at Cole/Marr Coffeehouse.

Carved out of the adjacent Cole/Marr Photography Workshops, the Cole/Marr Coffeehouse provides a pleasantly placid locale for coffee sipping, lounging, and noshing on a variety of baked goods. Energize before a long day at work or wind down after a stressful turf war with territorial badgers with a soothing DOMA coffee ($1.60) or latte ($2.55). Nibble on a breakfast sandwich ($3.75) or soak in the live music on Thursday nights while admiring local fine-art photography and upscale décor featuring massive wooden pillars and cloud-scraping loft-style ceilings. Sate a sweet tooth and ponder how much fun taking a ballet lesson with the ’78 Steelers would be while munching on a delectable homemade brownie ($2.50) or a scone ($2.50) baked and delivered by a local old-world bakery.

A cup of coffee in the morning can mean the difference between hitting the ground running and hitting the snooze button relentlessly. Give your alarm clock time to let its bruises heal with today’s Groupon to Cole/Marr Coffeehouse.

Cole/Marr Photography Workshops

In 1975, photographers Kristen Cole and David Marr founded their eponymous workshops in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, with only a darkroom, some developing equipment, and a classroom that could barely hold five students and a small grizzly bear. After 20 years of educating New Englanders, the talented duo relocated its expanding school to Boise to impart the duo's commercial and artistic expertise to students in the Treasure Valley. Cole/Marr Photography Workshops now illuminates the art of image capture in Boise's renovated Cultural Center, which houses the school's three darkrooms, studio and framing areas, digital workstations, and a photo library. Open to new framers and advanced snappers alike, the workshops' curriculums span fundamentals of both traditional and digital photography, with seminars on topics such as the darkroom process, Photoshop editing, and portraiture. Pupil and instructor galleries inspire with beautiful shots, many taken during photo safaris led by Cole and Marr to destinations as diverse as the contents of a communal diary.

If you want to be a better photographer whether to just understand your camera and take better family photos or work towards a more professional look, Cole/Marr will get you there. Take a stroll through their gallery and see what great photography is all about.

Amazing intro to photgraphy. The intimate setting with David was comfortable and relaxed. David made the information easy to understand and taught me more in an hour than the 4 photo 101 books I read.

David is an excellent instructor who's patience & attention to detail can bring success in the applied art of photography to within reach of those who find it daunting!
