Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock and 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 $15, you get $30 worth of café fare at Ground Control in Goodyear. Ground Control packs European flare from the owners' worldly travels into a casual community café. Continental influences are easy to see and taste with expansive breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus and a huge selection of refreshments—Ground Control's traditional café liquids include lattes, mochas, and iced teas as well as blended smoothies, beer, and wine. Bring friends to bolster the communal experience and drop in for the special weekly events, ranging from wine and beer tastings to live musical performances.
- A gem in the west valley! great atmosphere and and [sic] live music. The coffee is always fresh and the food is tasty. – Isaac A., Yelp
- Ground Control is a great little place to hang out. Their coffee is great (try the Cafe Cubano if you haven't yet), their food is great, they have an amazing beer selection (you won't find any coors or bud here), amazing Gelato (try the coconut), and they even have quite a selection of wines. – Aaron D. Campbell, Urbanspoon
Ground Control’s cuisine reflects the cosmopolitan lifestyle of its owner, Sean, who offsets his nightly bartending with daily travels as a professional pilot. He and his wife, Tara, have also lived abroad, a sojourn that developed their taste for European dining. Now settled in Arizona, executive chef Chris Ibarra still satisfies their cravings—and those of their patrons—with scoops of house-made gelato atop stuffed crepes, short ribs braised in Guinness, and custom wood-fired pizzas crowned in ingredients such as roma tomatoes, duck, and gouda. Open for three meals a day, the eatery also anoints glasses with exotic ingredients by serving rich espresso drinks, creative cocktails, and sippy cups of water from the Fountain of Youth. Live music fills the space every Friday from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
