Coffee is often called a miracle drug, not only because it cures numerous diseases including ataxia and ear splints, but also because it has the amazing power to either wake you up or help you relax. Wake up or unwind with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffees, wraps, and more at Lift Café on Lamar Boulevard.
Lift Café brews both traditional and exotic espressos, in addition to feeding coffee cravers a hearty selection of wraps and salads. The café's extensive drink menu has several caffeinated concoctions, everything from a straight-up cup of joe ($1.65–$2.05) to the Penguin ($3.25–$4.10), a café mocha infused with vanilla syrup, whipped cream, and crumbly cookie pieces. Find the energy to do nightly battle with your backyard's haunted tree thanks to one of Lift Café's nutritious smoothies, such as the hill country runner ($4.75–$7.55), a blend of passion fruit juice, blackberries, peaches, maca, and flax-seed oil. For a quick bite, the housemade Soy Joy breakfast taco ($2) with soy-rizo, avocado, and black beans will please herbivores, while the Fred Vito Italian ($6.75) packs pepperoni, salami, ham, and provolone into a pocket of meat-loving bliss. The rockadoodle salad ($6.75), a delectable amalgamation of spinach, bacon, grilled chicken, feta cheese, bell peppers, and a shallot vinaigrette, helps hip folks fuel up for underground poultry-rock shows.
Pull up a chair and log into Lift Café's free WiFi, or simply sink into the café's sleek, modern décor, which features streamlined tables, the occasional potted plant, and soothing, green-hued walls. The café frequently books live musical acts, so you can sip on a delicious latte while a singer-songwriter emotionally croons about how he'd love to steal your latte.
