Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking meters. Indulge in savory streetside fare with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh-made drinks and snacks at the Diversity Den Café in Concord.
The Diversity Den Café is a coffeehouse and social hub where exquisite potables meet lively community events. The café boasts a variety of specialty caffeinated beverages, such as the indulgent Oreo Diverse latté, made with espresso, steamed milk, peppermint syrup, whipped cream, and topped with a crushed Oreo cookie ($3.50–$4.30, plus $0.50 for extra cookies). Or keep it simple with one of a selection of herbal teas ($1.30–$1.60) or a spiced vanilla chai latté ($3.25–$4.25). An extensive wine and spirit menu, which features beer ($3–$4.50) and classic cocktails ($7–$11), fuels socializing and friendly debates over the etymological origins of Thomas Jefferson. The Diversity Café also lines the empty bellies of its customers with ever-changing meal options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as a steady menu of bagels, muffins, and pastries ($0.59–$1.95).
Diversity Den's comfy couches and cozy wooden tables attract a wide range of customers, and owner Joyce Saint-Cyr and her accommodating staff aim to foster a relaxing environment for community members to meet and mingle. Java junkies not in the mood to socialize can tweet about blogging and Facebook about Yahooing while connected to free WiFi. The Diversity Den is home to multiple live musical, artistic, and comedic events every week, as well as support groups that serve as a healing resource for the entire community.
