Late-night restaurants allow hungry patrons to avoid both the after-work crowd and the during-work crowd, who often crowd booths with their computers and staffs of hundreds. Feast in comfort with this Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of café fare and drinks at Crest Cafe.
Named a top coffee shop/diner top by Zagat, Crest Cafe slings all-day human fuel on its hearty breakfast and lunch-and-dinner menus. An avocado-enhanced breakfast burrito ($9.50) or the Hangover ($9.95), a spicy omelet packed with chicken sausage, are available all day and pair well with a mimosa ($5.95) or a glass of cough syrup. The portobello sandwich ($9.95) delivers robust meatless sustenance to tongue buds, and the 5th Avenue burger ($8.95) sandwiches a half pound of ground beef or turkey. In addition to coffee drinks ($2.50–$3.75), Crest’s beverage selection includes mexican hot chocolate ($3.50), a Häagen-Dazs milk shake ($4.75), and a lineup of local craft beers ($3.95–$4.25). All of the café’s hearty fare is available until midnight, when the restaurant closes and most portals to the spirit world open.
