When the Earth becomes uninhabitable in late 2011, restaurants will be forced to adapt to space cooking conditions. Until then, today’s Groupon gets you $20 worth of fresh, fast gourmet fare and drinks on Earth at Galaxy Cafe for $10. This Groupon is valid for dine-in at all three locations for dinner, lunch, and breakfast.
Galaxy Cafe's food is served in a future-feeling, mod atmosphere that maintains a kitschy and casual feel with its counter service. The locally owned cafe's friendly staff prides itself on efficiency when doling out food made from fresh ingredients, 100% certified Angus beef, and Boar’s Head meats and cheeses. The dinner menu is served until 10 p.m. and includes burgers, wraps, salads, sandwiches, soups, desserts, and an ample beer and wine list. The carb-conscientious will enjoy a chimichurri steak wrap ($8.79), hot veggie wrap ($7.99), or Asian seared-tuna salad ($10.49). For breadier delights, the grilled chicken sandwich with mozzarella and bacon ($8.99) is capable of filling any food chamber, while the Zocalo burger ($8.99) teaches your tongue a taste lesson. A sweet treat, such as the chocolate torte ($4.49) or the crème brûlée ($4.49), silences any voice inside your head that yells at you to add sugar to your toothpaste.
Breakfast (served until 4 p.m. on weekends) includes meals “from around the Galaxy” such as the Mediterranean ($6.99), made up of eggs scrambled with fresh roma tomatoes, feta cheese, and fresh basil. Build-your-own breakfast wraps (starting at $5.99), traditional breakfasts, and a la carte items are also available alongside plentiful liquids to get your sluggish cells moving through their respective channels. Outdoor patio dining is available along with a pet-friendly atmosphere.
