Sandwiches allow eager hands to directly transport food into mouths, giving much needed rest to tired forks, spoons, and soup catapults. Grab a bite with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, paninis, and ice cream at Papillon Café and Creamery in Pasadena.
Papillon Café and Creamery juxtaposes sweet and savory eats on a menu of subs, wraps, and paninis, bolstered by fresh-baked cookies, ice cream, and fruit smoothies. Fingers stretch around a selection of hefty sandwiches, including the spicy italian ($4.99), a cross-section of pepperoni, ham, and salami smothered in a cornucopia of toppings and Papillon's secret sauce, which disguises itself in public with mustard mustaches. A collection of 10 vegetarian sandwiches gives structure to garden greens in concoctions such as the grape-leaf-laden greek wrap ($4.99) and the Sailor Man wrap ($4.99), which floats spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes onto toothy shores. Continue the sandwich trend at the ice-cream counter, where diners can build custom confections with a pair of any of the seven fresh-baked cookies and nine ice-cream fillers ($2).
