Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking meters. Sip into a waking dream with this Groupon.
$5 for $10 Worth of Asian-Fusion Café Fare
Croissants ($1.95 each) and ham-and-cheese quiche ($4.95) have a distinctly French flair, whereas freshly pressed paninis ($5.89+) brim with homemade Asian sauces such as Thai peanut, sweet Thai chili, and teriyaki. See the breakfast-and-lunch menu and dessert-and-specialty menu.
Next Door Bake Shop
Two sisters opened Next Door Bake Shop, taking their shared love of baking and coffee to create a kid-and-mom-friendly café. Serving an Asian fusion twist on traditional bakery fare, their breakfast and lunch menu, combines bagels, quiches, and croissants with bubble tea and thai peanut paninis. Desserts include cupcakes, cake pops, muffins, and macaroons.
Baristas steam up fresh coconut lattes and salted-caramel hot chocolate to wash down both sweet and savory treats. Thanks to sunny yellow-, lime-, and aqua-colored walls and ceiling-to-hardwood-floor windows, the space is filled with light, and guests can set their laptops atop one of many café tables or break out an abacus while sitting on a modern low-backed couch.
