Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, espresso, and sandwiches at In the Company of Thieves, located on East Johnson Street. This deal is not valid on drinks from the fridge.
In the Company of Thieves satisfies caffeine cravings with French-pressed coffee supplied from regional roasters such as Kickapoo, Anodyne, and Just Coffee. Hustle-and-bustlers can pick up a 16 oz. cup of joe to go ($2.08) and savor the 100% organic flavor as they start their day. Those needing an extra jolt before they host the 36-hour "Save the Gremlins" marathon can imbibe a rich and frothy two-shot latte ($3.75). Enjoy lunch within In the Company of Thieves' comfy storefront or outside with its outdoor seating, as the café's chef puts together hearty sandwiches, such as a scrumptious turkey and brie panini ($6.59). The café also features a wide-array of palatable pastries, meaning you can dip a scone ($2.64) into a cup of java. Iced coffees and chilled smoothies are flavorful ways to cool off on a hot day, and the free WiFi (with purchase) gives college students a chance to study, procrastinate, or write their thesis on procrastination studies.
- Really great atmosphere, laid back staff. Free wi-fi is awesome. The second time I was in, the guy behind the counter remembered what I had the first time I was there, which was awesome. Comfortable place to work or just spend the afternoon. – Jon Z., Yelp
- They make the best mocha in town. They serve "Just Coffee" brand coffee beans which is a local, fair trade, organic bean roaster that delivers their beans via bicycle. Even in winter. ALL of the staff are easy going and friendly. – Christine, Google Maps
