Baking is a matter of cause and effect: without yeast, bread won't rise; without eggs, scones will crumble; and without measuring spoons, massive cookies will envelop the earth. Devour nonthreatening edibles with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of baked goods and flavorful savories at Fou d'Amour in Grosse Pointe.
Fou d'Amour's bustling ovens beget a fragrant array of tasty confections and fresh lunch fare. Patrons can take in the surrounding décor as they relax on opulent upholstery, cozy up to plush pillows, or rest their heads on pillowy scones, which come in dream-inducing flavors such as banana pecan, dark-chocolate orange, and lemon currant ($2 for a large, $0.90 for a mini). Cappuccinos and hot teas keep mouth motors well oiled as they power through a mélange of decadent cupcakes ($2.25). A range of light lunch fare makes for satisfying quick bites or on-the-go meals, with plates such as deep-dish quiche ($5.95/slice) and chicken salad perched atop a cranberry-apricot scone ($3.50). Skip the kitchen cleanup and emotional egg-timer quarrels of home cooking with a comfort casserole ($7–$9), available in weekly rotating varieties such as chicken pot pie or tuna noodle, or with one of the carry-out dinners available each Wednesday ($10/person).
