Whether the chicken or the egg came first, nutritionists have proven that starting your day with eggs reduces the likelihood of getting into chicken fights with coworkers by 90%. Fuel up for an altercation-free day with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of diner fare for breakfast and lunch at The Menu Restaurant.
Eaters hole up in The Menu Restaurant's warm, familiar confines to gobble the menu's fresh morning fare. Breakfast enablers tuck plump blueberries, chocolate chips, and other sweet stuffings ($1 each) into three buttermilk pancakes ($5.25), three multigrain flapjacks ($6.70), or cargo pockets lined with saran wrap. The tantalizing aroma of 7-ounce steaks paired with two eggs ($9.80) wafts across tables, rendering grumbling bellies speechless. Patrons clink mimosa glasses ($4) or prosthetic glass hands over build-your-own breakfast burritos, omelettes, and breakfast sandwiches ($4.20+) or house-made machaca nestled between scrambled eggs and torta bread fresh from the grill, slathered with salsa fresca, pepper jack cheese, and spicy sour cream ($7.75).
Curved wooden beams arch over tables and booths at the airy eatery as sunrays slant onto vintage framed photos of local beach spots, surfboards, and a collection of work by local artists.
