What You'll Get
Showering a bride and groom in rice can be harmful to birds, but if you shower yourself in rice pudding, the birds will flock to you, call you master, and help you get dressed in the morning. Soar to new heights of pudding consumption with today's deal: for $4, you'll get $8 worth of rich rice pudding and more at Loving Cup, a comfort foodatorium.
Using local, organic, and all-natural ingredients, the friendly cooks at Loving Cup mix flavorful concoctions of rice pudding for all moods and mealtimes. Spin a spoon around a bowl of their finest rice puddings ranging from fruit-infused mango to sweet English toffee. Throw down a few small cups for taste testing ($3.75), or place spoons in proximate palms to help you consume a family-style extra large ($7.75). As the textural bliss tumbles across your taste buds, high five your heart in the knowledge that each 6-ounce serving packs a mere 125 calories and 3.5 grams of fat, making it nearly as healthy as eating an imaginary stick of butter, and far more filling.
With generous hours of operation throughout the week, including closing times as late as 10 p.m. on the weekends, Loving Cup is a handy destination for breakfast, brunch, lunch, linner, dinner, or dinnerfast. Today's Groupon also covers generous pours of Loving Cup blends such as smoothies ($4.75 on average), fresh pressed and squeezed juices ($3.50 on average), and frozen yogurt ($3.75 small, $7.75 XL), which means you might want to replace your pockets with Ziploc bags and bring a funnel.
SF Weekly gave Loving Cup's Polk Street location a glowing review. Two Yelpers gives the Owens Street location four stars:

About Loving Cup
In 2010, 7x7 created a bucket list for San Franciscans that is anything but morbid: “50 Treats to Eat Before You Die.” Coming in at number 15 is Loving Cup’s coconut rice pudding, a family recipe from the eatery’s owners, mother-and-daughter duo Sandy and Liz Hawrylo. With only six ingredients—nonfat milk, Arborio rice, eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla bean—they whip up fluffy rice pudding in cups, pints, and even 4-pound party tubs.
Their allegiance to simple recipes and natural ingredients doesn't end with their signature pudding, as they also hand-churn toppings into nonfat frozen yogurt that contains neither chemicals nor preservatives. They use as many local products and ingredients as possible, serving cups of joe from Barefoot Coffee out of San Jose and making sure that the cows that provide their organic dairy products have valid California licenses.
