While most people don't believe that you can actually read your fortune in tea leaves, everyone knows you can use them to bribe the Tooth Fairy into granting your wishes. Acquire leverage with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of tea and light café fare at Madhatters Tea House & Café.
When not busy filling cups with selections of teas from around the world, Madhatters Tea House & Café's tea-masters quell tummy temblors with morning and midday teatime eats. Refresh weary taste buds with Moroccan mint-green tea, or sip All Day Breakfast black tea in protest of federal laws banning bacon after 9 a.m. ($2.99 for a 16-oz. pot). Daily morning selections such as breakfast burritos ($2.49), toasted bagel plates ($2.99–$8.99), and tea-infused oatmeal ($2.99–$3.99) rise early to put in breakfast-menu appearances. The Migas Scram blends three eggs, salsa, and gouda, crispily complemented with corn tortillas ($5.99). Lunching pairs can schedule an Afternoon Tea for two ($18), sipping a 3-cup pot of tea or two iced teas while nibbling on salmon and cucumber tea sandwiches, scones, and petits fours. Tea sandwiches ($2.99 each) arrive outfitted in toothsome couture, including smoked-jalapeño-tuna salad and spinach-and-chicken salad.
Sippers cozy up to cups set atop wrought iron tables, debating preferred flavors or which O in “oolong” is silent between drinks. Light blue walls and interior windows mimic country charm, and an outdoor patio allows diners to enjoy a trio of liquid delights, solid eats, and gaseous fresh air.
