Without taste buds to make eating fun, humans would eschew chewing in favor of more interesting forms of attaining nourishment, such as shotgunning a grain silo or sleeping with a cow under the pillow. Consume your calories the delicious way with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, pizza, and café fare at Jitters Café.
Jitters Café revs body engines with fresh-brewed coffee and keeps them happily purring with an onslaught of delicious café fare. House-roasted java ($1.50+) boosts energy for a global ciabatta-sandwich chewing tour, featuring layovers at the chicken philly ($5.99), the italian philly ($5.99), and the Ragin' Cajun, a handheld behemoth of chicken, roasted peppers, and spicy sauce ($5.99). Mix and match more than 25 specialty pizza pies—such as a large spinach pesto ($11.99)—with one of 60 smoothies and shakes ($3.69+) to impress your gullet with any of more than 1,620 flavor combinations. Garden foragers will enjoy the vegetal crunch of a classic cobb salad ($6.99) or an Artichoke Parm sandwich ($5.99), and handheld wraps ($5.99) such as the Twisted Tuna and the turkey BLT provide a functional lunch solution for eaters who demand their meals rolled, not sandwiched.
Since 1999, Jitters has been calming all manner of cravings with a menu that blends the best aspects of a pizzeria, sandwich shop, and independent coffee house. The café roasts its own coffee to create mochas, caramel lattes, and cappuccinos, and turns its blenders on full speed to whip up more than 60 smoothies and shakes in flavors such as Vermont maple or blackberry cream. Subs and ciabatta sandwiches join a menu of brick oven pizzas such as a Jamaican jerk pie with mozzarella and chicken or a Popeye pizza, which arrives decorated with mozzarella, ricotta, spinach, and an anchor tattoo.
