When a sandwich is too big, it can be held together with a toothpick or blended into a purée and spread between two pieces of bread. Keep it together with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $8 for lunch for two with two sandwiches, two orders of chips, and two pickles (up to a $17 value)
- $15 for $30 worth of dinner fare
At lunch, duos can choose from seven hearty sandwiches made from local ingredients, such as the italian sub packed with genoa salami, ham, and provolone beneath a layer of sweet roasted peppers and spicy mustard, or the southwest roast beef topped with chipotle mayo. Alternatively, chefs bust out the grill at dinner and quell appetites with 8-ounce burgers ($6.50), grilled lemon-rosemary chicken ($8), and grilled vegetable sandwiches ($8).
Coriander Cafe & Country Store
Featured by Paul Stern on Mansfield-StorrsPatch in 2011—just months after its opening—Coriander Cafe & Country Store has hatched quite the name for itself in Eastwood. According to Stern, brothers Scott and Brett Laffert run the show with Brett, a former chef and self-proclaimed “country person at heart,” transforming local ingredients into gourmet sandwiches, burgers, and straw hats. The shop makes all their breads—from ciabatta to whole wheat—in-house before stacking them with fresh-carved turkey and cranberry sauce or homemade black-bean patties. Yet the cooks don’t stop at handheld fare; the menu changes daily and can include anything from pan-seared haddock over corn-and-chive griddlecakes to braised pork belly with a side of chipotle grits.
Coriander Cafe also welcomes early risers into its country confines for a cup of fair-trade and organic coffee from Red Barn Coffee Roasters, a homemade bagel, or a decadent pastry such as a raspberry scone or cinnamon-sugar donut muffin, which guests can enjoy inside or amid fresh-picked oxygen molecules on the backyard deck. A fully stocked country store outfits fleeting customers with all the necessities, from homemade cookies and Red Barn coffee to gourmet jams and hot sauces.
