Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today's Groupon: for $7 you get $15 worth of coffee, breakfast, and lunch at Napoli Coffee, located on Northeast Carlisle Boulevard.
Napoli Coffee serves espresso, coffee, and tea drinks along with a selection of breakfast and lunch items. Baritone baristas rub coffee cup rims to play morning-time melodies with Americanos ($2.42/med), caffè mochas ($3.62/med), and iced chai teas ($3.52/med). Start your morning with a savory bean-and-cheese burrito, served with eggs and potatoes ($4.75), or a sweet cherry Danish ($2.55). If you prefer liquidated sweets, try a frappe carmelito ($4.32/sm) while enjoying free WiFi on the patio. At lunch, a glass of green-tea lemonade ($2.50/sm) washes down a handmade turkey sandwich served on a ciabatta roll ($4.69). You can buy up to three Groupons and spend them all at once while cramming for an astronomy midterm, or space them out to stay awake for all of Haley’s comets. A warm and inviting seating area provides a friendly arena to get to know all of the Napoli coffee beans.
