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 biscotti parking meters. Let your taste buds travel with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of European café fare and drinks at Fabian's Café in Scarborough.
Fabian's Café invites patrons into a European-style eatery and confectionary shop offering savoury continental cuisine as well as handmade pastries. The café’s midday menu woos appetites with homemade goulash soup ($4.95) and three types of french crêpes, including a white-asparagus varietal ($7.25). Lunchers can quell Bavarian cravings, meanwhile, with the kitchen’s wiener schnitzel ($8.50), accessorized with potato salad and lederhosen. For dessert, guests can sample an array of handmade pastries, which include strudels in apple, cherry, and cheese flavours ($1.95) and tarts ($2.60) bearing almonds, fresh strawberries, or mixed fruit and accompanied by a security guard to deter sticky-fingered nursery-rhyme knaves.
