Coffee and baked goods 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 $10, you get a $20 gift card good for coffee, espresso drinks, teas, and more at Espresso Royale. This Groupon is redeemable at two East Lansing locations: one on Grand River Avenue and another on Lake Lansing Road.

Espresso Royale, which started as a favorite pick-me-up for midwestern college students and has since branched out to cater to the nonstudenty masses, uses a custom, full-bodied Italian bean blend for its espresso drinks. The café's menu ranges from standard coffee sips and specialty espresso drinks to teas and baseballs autographed by former vice presidents. Pour a latte ($2.70–$3.65) down your throat, substitute a fruit smoothie for a meal ($3.65–$4.15), scratch your itchy holiday spirit with a mint hot chocolate ($2.30–$3.30), or drink from a teapot ($3.25) using a traditional tea straw.

Espresso Royale

Though inspired by the northern California cafés of the early 1980s, Espresso Royale fits right in with Michigan’s modern coffee drinkers—in 2014 readers of The Michigan Daily voted it Best Coffee Shop for the fifth year in a row. Their coffees include a house blend developed in 1987, which has since been joined by a seasonally appropriate autumn spice blend and a southern Italian-style espresso called Napoli. Royale's customers also clamor to the counter for favorites such as raspberry mochas, mint hot chocolates, and ginger dragon, a tea layered with fresh lemon and steeped ginger root that can be served iced or heated by a dragon named Ginger.
