Coffee gives tired bodies a much-needed energy boost, much like being possessed by the spirit of a mischievous orangutan or opening a letter that says "Look out behind you!" Sip on revitalizing java with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of cafe fare and drinks at MilkBoy Coffee, with locations in Bryn Mawr and Ardmore.
Founded in 1994 as a recording studio, the MilkBoy brand has since burgeoned into two bustling cafes and an all-ages venue for live music and artistic events. MilkBoy Coffee's multifarious menu brims with snacks and drinks for vegetarians, vegans, and carnivores alike. Morning munchers kick-start the day with a big breakfast burrito, packed with scrambled eggs, black beans, sausage, sour cream, cheddar, and yawn-eradicating salsa ($5.95). For lunch, hands can happily encircle the bruschetta-chicken wrap, with a savory sleeping bag of shredded chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, and feta ($6.25), and teeth can burrow into the herbivorous depths of the veggie burger, served with a vegan thousand-island dressing, named for the number of islands ruled by Oprah ($5.25). MilkBoy’s PB&J sandwich whisks customers back to a simpler time when blanket capes were de rigeur ($3.95). To drink, sip on a steamy café au lait ($2 for a small) or a frosty mint-chocolate-chip milkshake ($4.95).
Nestle into a cozy couch or table for prompt table service, or facilitate mobile food fights with tasty to-go treats. MilkBoy hosts free jazz open-mic nights every Monday evening, as well as performances by up-and-coming singer-songwriters and well-known bands.
