The image of a freshly baked cake cooling on a windowsill invokes a sense of encompassing warmth, like a hug from a friend or getting zipped up in a sleeping bag and thrown into a cavernous ball pit. Awaken homely sensations with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of deli fare and ice cream at Continental Pastries & Deli in Battle Creek.
Continental Pastries & Deli packs barren bellies with freshly baked breads, pastries, and a lunch menu stocked with quality meats and cheeses. Sweet and savory treats conquer pangs with a blitz of homemade vigor, featuring tortes ($10.50–$11.50 for 6-inch) and breads ($0.80–$4.10) bursting with tasty tidbits eager to waltz with bashful molars. Signature sandwiches ($6.95) anchor the cache of midday nourishments, showcasing tasty selections such as The Old Smokey Mountain, which stacks turkey, bacon, and melted provolone topped with a slathering of barbecue sauce, all napping quietly on a ciabatta roll.
Newly added to Continental's zestful repertoire, the ice-cream shop provokes delectable brain freezes with sundaes, shakes, and malts. Attempt to surmount mammoth four-scoop cones ($5.10), or slurp a smoothie ($3.95–$4.50) and cool down a noggin that’s been overworked from memorizing tractor repair manuals.
