When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get classic American breakfast or lunch for two at Oak Street Café in De Pere (up to a $17.98 value).
Oak Street Café's cooks fire up grills with the dawn and whip up a menu of homestyle omelets, skillets, and sandwiches. Open daily 5 a.m.–2:30 p.m., the café hosts diners as they launch into the day with breakfast dishes such as the Big Oak ($7.99), in which a plate wobbles under a hearty tower of three eggs, two slices of bacon, two sausage links, a sausage patty, and a choice of a pancake, toast, or a slap in the face. A selection of omelets and eggs are available all day, such as the Works omelet ($7.49), in which a cheese referee hosts a cage match between a meaty trio of bacon, ham, and sausage and a tag team of mushrooms, onions, and green pepper. Lunchtime-dining duos can fill bellies the Reuben sandwich ($6.49)—in which corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand-island dressing pillow fight on a cushy mattress of grilled rye bread—and mashed potatoes and homemade meat loaf ($6.49), which disguise themselves in gravy in an attempt to slink past teeth unnoticed.
