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 $7, you get $15 worth of café fare at the Flip Side Cafe in Gadsden.
Flip Side brews drinks and fabricates treats for coffee wranglers and hungry patrons alike in its upbeat café. Bountiful breakfasts, midday meals, and more abound in Flip Side's expansive menu. Bite daintily into a barrel of bagels ($1.59) and muffins ($1.99) or squash hunger altogether with a grilled panini sandwich ($2.69–$4.29), savory soup ($2.19 for a cup), and salad ($6.49). Stomachs and second stomachs will samba to each bite of the steak quesadilla, an orchestral symphony with a grilled steak solo, cheddar and jack cheese arias, and a chorus of fajita vegetables dressed in a tangy southwest sauce ($5.99).
Each steaming mug transports specialty beans from Crimson Cup coffee into waiting coffers. Caffeine-crazed patrons can recharge with one of many steaming, cooling, or freezing espresso- and tea-based drinks, including the warm white mocha ($3.30 for a small), the frozen chai latte ($3.80 for a regular), and the iced vanilla latte ($3.55 for a regular). Grab a chair and leisurely lounge with a mound of sugary cheesecakes ($4.49), cookies ($.89), and lemon squares ($2.59) from the bakery case, or take advantage of the speedy drive-thru in your race to obtain the fruitiest muffin during edible scavenger hunts.
