Brunch—like twilight, sporks, skorts, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone’s favorite mutant mealtime with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of breakfast and lunch cuisine at Le Peep in Lenexa or Overland Park.
Specialty egg dishes, steamy espressos, and smoothies dance across Le Peep’s expansive menu. Six innovative varieties of eggs benedict drizzle fans of the classic dish in a capacious collection of satisfying breakfast plates. The hollandaise-drenched southern benedict perches two poached eggs atop layers of bacon and turkey, and its english muffin charms the peasant-potato and Sassy apple sides with its delectably distinguished accent ($9.99). A short stack of griddle-fresh cranberry-almond pancakes sweetly waddles onto plates ($5.99), and the Italian-style cappuccino is brewed extra strong to hold heavy, extra-loud alarm clocks on its heaps of foam ($4.39 for a 16 oz.).
During lunch, guests can crunch into Le Peep’s strawberry salad, in which fresh greens join summer strawberries, pecans, and cheese topped with a sweet vinaigrette ($7.99), or hang a fang on a half-pound burger—ground beef grilled to order and topped with a choice of Cajun bacon and cheese ($7.99) or grilled mushrooms and onions ($7.79).
Earthy aromas from fresh-brewed beverages greet guests at the door of Le Peep, hinting at the espresso-based creations that await inside—Colombian house coffee, specialty blends, or the flavor of the day. Beyond coffee, the staff also sweetens cups with fruit smoothies. These handcrafted drinks accompany a menu of breakfast and lunch fare dominated by omelets and sandwiches. Whipped eggs arrive studded with fresh veggies or chorizo sausage, and half-pound burgers come layered with Cajun bacon, weighing down tables so that they don't have to be anchored in place by linens made of iron.
