What You'll Get


Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your morning with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth Hot Spots or Mad Dogs bucks.

The baristas at Hot Spots brew a menu of fresh, locally roasted cups of Caribbean coffee, and the chefs at Mad Dogs serve hot dogs and refreshing Hawaiian-style shaved ice from their fare folio. Hot Spots' beach-adjacent venue equips patrons with double cappuccinos ($3.50) and spiced chai teas ($2.85 for medium) for warm seaside sips or experiments on whether caffeine makes whales fly. Baristas imbue double café mochas ($3.95) with rich Ghirardelli chocolate and Monin syrup. Between late April and October, the shop remains open around the clock, acting as a lighthouse for bleary-eyed sailors. Mad Dogs, open until 2:30 a.m., fills famished feasters returning from late-night treks or meetings with accountants. Diners clasp fingers around Nathan's famous ballpark franks ($3.49) or cool down with 15 flavors of Hawaiian-style shaved ice ($3.89), including pineapple, watermelon, and cherries jubilee.

On the beach-adjacent patio, palms and blooming bougainvilleas sway in the sea breeze as strings of lights frame columns and archways.
