Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your morning with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of café fare and drinks at The Living Room Coffeehouse Point Loma.
The Living Room Coffeehouse tempts customers with a menu of gourmet breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare, and a cavalcade of drinks in a converted antique Victorian house. Baristas expertly blend berries with chocolate, coffee, and ice in the iced strawberry mocha ($4.35/large) and steam milk for the foamy cappuccino ($3.25/small; $3.65/large) by talking loudly about the virtues of soy. For breakfast, diners grab a tortilla and excavate the layers of pinto beans, ham, tomato, steamed scrambled eggs, and melted cheese that make up the Eggs Mexicana ($6.50).
A pageant of six egg tartlets parades herb cheese, spinach, lorraine, and Cajun-shrimp fillings in the assorted mini-quiche appetizer ($5.95). House multigrain bread or French baguettes bind a selection of sandwiches such as the grilled eggplant pesto ($6.95) all day long. Chefs mask the grilled chicken dijon beneath a blanket of creamy burgundy sauce mixed with mushrooms and a new identity made by the CIA ($8.50).
Inside the café, customers lounge in an eclectic mix of soft easy chairs and ornate couches, and balance laptops on small, round tables to take advantage of The Living Room's free WiFi. Huge windows illuminate colorful purple, gold, and muraled walls, and a glass display jails pastries caught carrying fruit fillings without a license. On the hardwood patio outside, guests slide in next to each other on long, white benches and around stone-topped tables.
