Sigmund Freud once said, “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar,” at which point he mistakenly attempted to light the lollipop dangling from his lower lip. Dig into the psychology of stogies with today’s Groupon to Elite Cigar Cafe in Addison. Choose between the following options:

Rows upon rows of name-brand and boutique stogies line the walls of the cigar shop-cum-café that couples its smokes with a full menu of sandwiches, pizzas, and burgers. Buffalo-style wings ($7.99) preheat palates before diners dive into the Elite burger’s lettuce-, tomato-, and red-onion-covered patty resting atop a toasted artisanal ciabatta bun ($7.49). Diners can build their own pizza ($10.99) with an entrepreneurial spirit and a choice of two toppings, such as italian sausage, mushrooms, and canadian bacon. Post-meal, a hearty drag from a Tatuaje, Padron, Fuente, or Rocky Patel cigar settles stomachs better than a tummy rub from a court-appointed attorney.
Elite Cigar’s spacious interior greets guests with gold-colored walls, speckled marble tabletops, and ample furniture modeled after King Henry IV’s royal designated-smoking area. The café, patio area, and members lounge bustle with exotic flavors billowing from mouth chimneys as patrons watch sporting events on lounge-area TVs or tap toes to live music on the weekends.
Elite Cigar Cafe
Below Elite Cigar Cafe's black tin ceiling, teeth-clenched stogies smolder and reach for the sky with aromatic plumes. The humidor stocks 90 cigar varieties, from everyday indulgences to high-end smokes such as the Serie 1926 from Padron, which has earned a spot on Cigar Aficionado's yearly list of The 25 Best Cigars on more than one occasion. Alongside the leather-appointed smoking lounge is a full bar and café replete with wide-screen televisions, southwestern cuisine, and a healthy selection of bottled and free-range beers.
