Drinking coffee, like yelling at the cat, thinking about motorcycles, and setting fire to the neighbor's wicker man, is vital to starting each day. Inaugurate the a.m. with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of coffee and café fare at Foggy Bottom Coffee House, located in Dexter.
Roasting and blending its coffee beans on-site, the independently owned Foggy Bottom Coffee House serves a percolating variety of rich java-inspired flavors and a host of palate-balancing sandwiches. Drink one of Foggy Bottom's coffees in the café or take home a pound to brew at home, with variations including the Killer Baboons dark roast, a spicy cup of joe with a smattering of chocolate tones ($13.13/lb.), and the Kenyan AA, with hints of mandarin orange ($14.36/lb.).
Breakfast offerings include a phalanx of sandwiches ($2.29) and legions of wraps ($4.29). Foggy Bottom's signature sandwiches include the Mt. Shasta, featuring Ovengold turkey, cucumber sprouts, red onion, tomato, and light veggie cream cheese on a seven-grain whole bread ($8.49). The Foracker wrap grills soy and rice tempeh, then layers it with melted provolone, hot bell peppers, and marinated artichoke hearts ($6.49). Admirers of nature trails and leafy meals can embrace the Leelanau Classic salad, in which strawberries, bananas, dried cherries, grape tomatoes, crumbled gorgonzola, and sliced almonds mingle on a bed of verdant lettuce, all drizzled with a light raspberry vinaigrette ($8.49). With its menu on a sprawling colorful chalkboard and its walls covered with photos commemorating the owner's trek up Mount McKinley, Foggy Bottom makes for a soothing spot to enjoy a hot cup of coffee while planning one's next expedition up Mars' Olympus Mons.
- The atmosphere is fun- the coffee house is pretty big, with tall ceilings, colorful wall murals and big burlap coffee bags on the walls. – Sarah R., Yelp, 9/3/08
