Without coffee, society would literally crumble under the weight of unsound buildings erected by dozing construction workers and unfocused architects. Help buttress the fragile social fabric with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of drinks and café eats at Fairly Grounded Coffee & Tea and Fairly Grounded Too.
At Fairly Grounded, brew-believers can sip on coffees, espressos, and teas while indulging in a menu of local, sustainable fare. Quell cavernous appetites with a homemade ham and cheddar scone ($3), or a gobbler panini on fresh local focaccia, featuring herbed turkey, cream cheese, and cranberry sauce ($5).
Herbivores and urbanite cattle will enjoy a bevy of veggie options, including the vegan “meatloaf” sandwich ($5), as well as vegan-friendly cookies ($1). Mugs of Fairly Grounded's signature Pour Over coffee ($1.85–$2.30) offer creative caffeinaters a chance to pick their favorite bean blends, and specialty crème brulée lattes ($3.50–$4.85) sate sweet teeth with caramel syrup, Ghirardelli white-chocolate sauce, and Easter Bunny tears. Fairly Grounded also boasts an array of fair-trade organic teas for leaf-lovers with sophisticated palates.
Fairly Grounded gathers its microroasted craft coffees from Water Avenue Coffee in Portland, Oregon, providing a seasonally rotating selection of beans from around the world. Free WiFi is available at the café so sippers can check on local news, weather, and hot dog-eating contests.
