The moderate climate of the Mediterranean makes it an ideal vacation spot for those looking to swim in lukewarm streams of tzatziki sauce and plant falafel trees. Sample nature's unnatural bounty with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mediterranean cuisine at Cool Café. This deal is valid at both the Vance Jackson Road and Stone Oak Parkway locations.
Cool Café fuses the flavors of Italy, Greece, the Middle East, and Asia, imbuing its menu with a continental twist that sates the appetites of vegetarians and omnivores alike. The Bangkok crepe delivers a valuable cargo of spinach, green bell peppers, green onions, mushrooms, black olives, and peanut sauce ($8.95), and the Santorina crepe brims with spinach, Kalamata olives, pine nuts, green onions, feta cheese, and a yogurt mint sauce ($9.95). Diners saddled with hunger after running a marathon on stilts can delve into a dish of rolo pasta, which sautés a chicken breast in Balsamic vinegar before adorning it with capers, fresh basil, and a tomato sauce ($10.95), whereas the fish kebab skewers fresh Atlantic salmon marinated in lemon and saffron as an audience of basmati rice, saffron, and spring mix salad looks on ($15.95).
Cool Café's two locations sport a rustic décor of wooden chairs, wall colors that range from neutral to vibrant, and large front windows that douse entryways with natural light. The Vance Jackson Road location further elevates the experience with karaoke on Thursdays, belly dancing on Fridays, and olive-peeling relays on Saturdays.
