Coffee and café fare have always gone together, like rock 'n' roll, yin and yang, and bald-eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of soups, sandwiches, coffee, and more at Elcy’s Café, located at the Glenside Train Station in Glenside.
Elcy’s Café percolates perk with a menu laden with barista-blended beverages and homemade fare. Come in early for an herb garden egglette scrambled with tomato, spinach, basil, mushroom, and goat cheese ($7.50). Or, open your face to the open-faced Marezy bagel, kept modest with a dressing of tomato and melted american cheese ($4). Come lunchtime, treat teeth to a triumvirate of chicken, tuna, and roasted veggie salads, served atop a medley of greens ($8.95), or pillage the palate with a Viking sandwich, which arrives on a garlicy longship stuffed with pesto chicken, tomatoes, mushrooms, and provolone ($7.25). Soup selections change daily depending on the chef’s preferences and the international tureen market, with selections ranging from cheddar tomato basil to turkey corn chowder, while soup slurpfests can find a sweet end with fresh baked brownies and cookies.
Pair your noshables with a warm cup of coffee, tea, or espresso, or strike fear into the heart of a smack-talking fruit bowl with a berry blast ($4.50) or a banana-split smoothie ($4.75). Elcy’s train station location allows for a quick precommute snack and sandwich to go, while the free WiFi and frequent live music encourage prolonged coffee shop lounging. Elcy’s usually closes in the afternoon for synchronized nap practice, so be sure to check the website for hours before pulling up station-side.
