Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of coffee, kebabs, sandwiches, and more at Emerald Coast Coffee and Grille's Buckhead location inside the Terminus office and entertainment complex.
Order a hot cup of special-roast java, hand-roasted in small batches to ensure high quality (traditional brewed coffee starting at $1.65, lattes and mochas starting at $3, and signature coffees starting at $3.50), as you peruse the menu. Third-shifters and breakfastaholics can order a $4.50 daybreaker like the Catalan (a Spanish omelet with sliced potatoes and onions), while daytime diners who insist upon chronologically appropriate fare can have a Cubano panini (ham, pork, swiss, and Cuban sauce, $7.50). To keep a meal flavorful, light, and healthy, follow the happy-heart icons to a grilled treat like the Taaza Tango, a grilled Indian chicken kebab over a cold bed of mixed greens, spiced pecans, fruit, cucumber, and mango vinaigrette ($8.50, $5.50 for salad without kebab). Smoothies like the Caribbean Tango (mango, passion fruit, and bananas, starting at $3.95) cap off a meal and relieve sunburned mouths.
Emerald Coast Coffee and Grille features free WiFi and air. Bring a laptop to get a couple of entries closer to your dream of reading all of Wikipedia, or just bring some friends and relax in the chic coffeehouse setting.
- Their 3-course brunch menu was a great sampler and filled me up, but not too full. The coffee was really smooth and rich, and the cafe de leche was awesome. The banana bread muffin was crispy on the outside and piping hot/moist on the inside. – Jeremy H., Yelp
- The place itself is nice and cute! It's like going to someone's very interesting and exotic house-- pretty jewel tones and eclectic furniture to look at. Great design and very cozy. – Isabel E., Yelp
- I also tried the "other" chai today: a genji chai which has ginger rather than masala. It was a tad bit sweeter... and perfect. Seriously, so very tasty. – Kathleen M., Yelp
