Adding gourmet ingredients to a meal makes a commonplace activity feel special, much like brushing your teeth with a sparkler or withdrawing money from an ATM while holding it at gunpoint. Enjoy the edible embellishments of a memorable meal with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of gourmet sandwiches, salads, breakfast fare, and more at LA Cafe on South Spring Street.
LA Cafe specializes in gourmet sandwiches, vitamin-rich salads, and hearty breakfast fare, all made from scratch using primo ingredients such as local eggs and produce, imported cheeses, and garden-fresh herbs. Start bleary-eyed mornings with a jolt of espresso ($1.85+) and an offering from the café’s breakfast menu. The appetizing eye-openers include a fried-egg sandwich ($5.99), Belgian waffles ($6.99), and the lumberjack breakfast plate, a feast of two eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast, and buttermilk pancakes ($8.99) that wraps its burly arms around taste buds and hugs away all their insecurities. Enjoy the café’s chic, European ambience while biting into a juicy burger (up to $9.25) or a specialty sandwich, such as the luxurious lobster grilled cheese loaded with brie, cheddar, and mayo mixed with grainy mustard and tarragon ($9.99).
Open 24 hours a day, LA Cafe makes an ideal spot for kicking off a busy day, wrapping up a long night, or embarking upon a 48-hour stretch of not talking to anyone but chicken caesar salads ($8.99). Colorful walls and hardwood floors add to a comfortably chic interior in which multifarious loaves of bread hang out stoking appetites and trying not to make eye contact with each other.
