Organic vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides, as they naturally repel pests by repeating everything they say in a sing-song voice. Savor the taste of these wonder foods with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of organic lunch fare at Jitters Café in Southington.
Jitters Café deftly intermixes locally grown, organic ingredients whenever possible to fill empty stomachs with a toothsome menu of soups, salads, and baked goods. Lavish neglected spice yens with a pungent bowl of veggie or meat chili flanked with stacks of crispy tortilla chips ($3.75/cup, $5.75/bowl), or spoon up savory destiny with a cup of the rotating soup of the day ($3.50/cup, $5.50/bowl). A vitamin-kissed mixed greens and spinach salad laced with candied walnuts, grape tomatoes, and judicious sprinkles of feta cheese ($6.75) hones jaw muscles and rabbit impressions. Guests can opt to eschew greenery entirely for the primal chew of cheese, pepperoni, or veggie pizza by the slice ($4–$5). Congo lines of freshly whipped desserts fill sweet teeth with bites of strawberry-topped cheesecake ($5.50), vegan cookies ($2.50), and frosty glasses of ice-cream-kissed frozen coffee ($3.50).
Sandwiched between a bookstore and a day spa, Jitters Café plates its tasty treats with a welcoming side of communal ambiance. Diners can rhythmically sip a steaming cup of espresso ($3.50) to the beat of live music or drop by for any number of events. On the eatery's spacious front or back patios, patrons can take advantage of free WiFi to entertain the local sparrow population with the sound of clicking laptop keys. Jitters Café serves lunch Monday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
