As with 8-bit Nintendo games, cannonball dives, and frenetic cartoons, breakfast cereal is one of those childhood delights you never truly outgrow. Today's deal feeds your inner child and outer adult in equal measures: for $7, you get $15 worth of breakfast, lunch, and drinks at Flake. Located at 513 Rose Ave, Flake is a part beach shack, half bacon hut, and two-thirds cool-atmosphere-coffee-house-that-is-obsessed-with-cereal-but-also-has-lots-of-sandwiches type of establishment.
If you're in a breakfast mood, get your ante meridiem on the good foot with a Breakwater Bagel (scrambled eggs, cheddar, and choice of ham or bacon on a toasted bagel, $5.75) or a Rad Muffin (egg, Black Forest ham, and American cheese on an english muffin, $4.50). If neither of these packs enough energy for your day of rhino-surfing, go for Flake's specialty, the Sambazon Acai Bowl ($6.50), which blends frozen acai berries with vegan hemp granola and tops it all with banana. And, true to its name, Flake also offers a selection of more than 20 cereals than run the gamut, from healthy adult to the ones with the cartoon animals on the box. The Basic Bowl ($4.75) gets you two scoops of cereal, two toppings, and your choice of milk (regular, soy, rice, almond, or organic).
The lunch menu offers heartier fare with a variety of paninis such as the Redneck Cowboy Chicken ($8.75), as well as tasty salads such as the Great Greek Salad ($8.50). It goes great with Flake's Great Greek Wrap ($7.95), which packs grilled white meat chicken, tomato, cucumber, onion, chopped basil, kalamata olives, greens, and feta into a sun-dried tomato tortilla.
Though you can only use one Groupon per visit, you can buy as many as you want. But practice caution: 9 out of 10 alchemists consider it unhealthy to eat more than four breakfasts in a single lifetime, as it disrupts the humors.
