Having coffee with friends can foster healthy relationships that might otherwise be limited to impersonal group texts or overly personal bathtime visits. Get a bite in person with a person with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee and deli fare at Espresso Lane in Newnan.
Espresso Lane's kindly baristas brew steaming cups of fresh-roasted coffee and hand-tamped espresso as diners nosh on pastries, soups, and sandwiches. Syrup and butter flood the crisp-fried chamber of a belgian waffle, making each bite like suddenly discovering a back pocket full of twenty-dollar bills printed on candy ($4.25). White albacore tuna slathered in mayo and sun-dried tomato dressing snuggles between soft slices of bread in the tuna-salad sandwich ($6.75), and a sprinkler full of raspberry vinaigrette spritzes the grapes, mandarin oranges, and strawberries of the garden salad until they sprout into a flavorful medley ($7.25). Cups of the soup of the day ally with demi sandwiches to suppress uprisings of indecisive appetites ($7.25).
Espresso Lane hosts live bands, local musicians, and international tambourine stars on many Friday and Saturday nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Quaintly aged brick and plaster walls receive a face-lift from fresh paintings and photographs recently harvested from the imaginations of local artists.
