Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of deli fare at Current Cuisine in Yellow Springs.
Since 1983, the deli wunderkinds at Current Cuisine have been crafting fresh sandwiches, salads, and breads while maintaining a high standard of customer service. The menu's breakfast bites, such as a sandwich constructed from local eggs and sausages ($2.99), occupy hands and mouths in the morning with an activity other than yawning. Lunch and dinner sustenance comes by the fistful in the form of overstuffed sandwiches that include the turkey provolone or the veggie with house-made hummus, local sprouts, red peppers, and cucumbers on focaccia ($4.99 each). In addition, the deli stocks its shelves with international groceries and delivers vitamins and minerals by the pound through a diverse selection of salads, such as chicken salad with red grapes and almonds ($6.99/lb.), spring marinated veggies ($5.49/lb.), and curried tofu salad ($6.99/lb.). Current Cuisine’s ovens also pop with fresh breads, otherworldly pastries, and flaky jack-in-the-boxes.
