The best coffee beans are grown in the center of the earth, but the farmer who dares to harvest them must overcome the infamous Lava Twins, infinite negative gravity, and his commitment issues. Grind the best beans growing aboveground with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of lunch, plus dessert and drinks, at Nature’s Corner Bakery and Cafe in Pelham.
Nature’s Corner serves up light and health-conscious lunches as well as baking supplies, baked goods, and fair-trade products such as South American coffee and giftware. Diners follow whispering earls on the trail of ham-and-swiss-cheese, egg-salad, tuna-salad, or vegetarian whole sandwiches ($6.95–$7.95), grilled golden or swaddled in wraps ($7.95). All sandwiches arrive fully clothed between two slices of whole-grain bread with lettuce, tomato, and a pickle spear or carrot sticks. A daily-changing special perches on plates arm-in-arm with soup or a garden salad speckled with house-grown sprouts ($9.99). Satisfy grumbling sweet teeth with a cupcake ($1.95–$2.50) and a mug of organic fair-trade bean pour ($1.65–$2.15). Patio chairs warm up to human touch in temperate weather.
