Like a live battery, coffee provides instant energy, keeps bodies warm, and can numb tongues if held in the mouth for too long. Energize sluggish taste buds with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of café fare and drinks at Outbound Station, in Conshohocken.
Situated at the Conshohocken Train Station, Outbound Station’s menu conducts a freight-train-size medley of La Colombe coffees, fresh juices, and portable nibbles for hungry commuters. For an early dose of Old World energy, jump start your senses with a cappuccino ($2.75+), café au lait ($2+), or a chai-tea latte ($2.75). Stomachs adjust better to the waking world when comforted with a breakfast sandwich of two fresh eggs under a cheese blanket on a toast or bagel bed ($3.45). Spicy up commutes with a chorizo panini, a pressed repast of smoked chorizo sausage augmented by avocado, lettuce, tomato, onions, and provolone ($6.95). Daily specialty bars feature guest appearances from pasta, wraps, tacos, and retired cabooses sighing wistfully for the days of steam trains and coal-powered espresso machines. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices quell commuter blues with vibrant blends such as the Vampire juice, a hearty mixture of carrot, beet, lime, and fawning teenage girls.
Armed with Outbound Station’s instant nourishment, busy commuters have extra time to subdue errant cowlicks and clear heads of creepy clowns from persisting childhood nightmares. Open seven days a week during commuting hours, Outbound Station’s rotating bars and gluten-free desserts please all appetites.
