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 gingerbread-biscotti parking meters. For $5, today's Groupon to Enzo's strews the streets with $10 worth of lunch fare and homemade sweets. Enzo's is located in Gateway Quarter and is open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday.
A savory selection of hot paninis ($6.95) begins with your choice of bread base. Try a turkey reuben on focaccia, ciabatta, wheat, marble rye, or baguette. Vegetarians can opt for the mother burger, a veggie-based patty stacked with tomato and lettuce on wheat toast (6.95). Earlier eats at Enzo’s include the hand-held convenience of grilled breakfast burritos ($4), including the roma (scrambled eggs, salami, provolone, hash browns, and spicy tapenade) and the salchicha (sausage, cheddar, and a side of salsa). Snatch up homemade cookies, muffins, brownies, and marshmallow treats to take home and hoard in your sugary-smelling bomb shelter for post-apocalyptic snacking.
Enzo's upscale dorm-room feel, which is accented by twinkling white lights, understated artwork, and cozy seating, makes it an ideal spot for relaxing, interviewing potential roommates, or hosting a raging kegger. Complimentary WiFi tastes delicious paired with Enzo's house blend, a cool blended frappe ($4), or a fresh-fruit smoothie.
