Writing the next great American novel takes commitment, courage, and the ability to seamlessly splice together passages from Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick. Start your next project in the ideal cafe setting with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee and vegetarian fare at Earth House Collective's cafe in Lockerbie.
Operated by Earth House Collective—a group of activists and artists dedicated to bolstering the local and global communities with culture and wellness—Earth House's cafe ensures that every wholesome meal on its menu is vegetarian. The shop incorporates many locally acquired and organic ingredients, and most dishes are vegan or gluten-free to ensure healthy, guilt-free digestion. Sup on a savory vegan Sonoma Salad sandwich, tossed with crispy baked tofu, red grapes, toasted pecans, and a creamy poppy-seed dressing ($4), or opt for a vegan and gluten-free mango black-bean pizza with a spicy and exotic poblano-pepper and sweet-potato accent ($4/slice). The cafe's 12-ounce, all-organic coffees are locally roasted by Bjava Coffee and are always ground and french-pressed to order, ensuring a neatly folded and more flavorful brew, with some sediment. Cafe connoisseurs can slurp the sweet, floral notes of the Guatemala roast ($2.50), the light fruitiness of the Ethiopian roast ($2.95), or the soft sweetness of the decaf Peru roast, which, like gazing at the stars or drawing the solar system with a tube of toothpaste, can be enjoyed at night ($2.95).
The cafe's warm, contemporary décor provides a quirky counterpoint to its historic, stained-glass-accented windows, and chocolaty couches beckon coffee quaffers to sit for hours with a cup of bean brew. The Earth House Collective's space is home to events such as film screenings, live music, and art exhibitions—all of which are open to non-members—so culture-seeking sippers can enjoy a dollop of fresh-steamed enlightenment with their joe-water.
