Although gathering berries on a dewy summer morning is an idyllic breakfast-building ritual, waking up from a recurring dream of gathering berries on a dewy morning may indicate a deep suppression of breakfast urges. Listen to your subconscious with today's Groupon: for $9, you get $18 worth of breakfast, lunch, and dessert eats at Patticakes & Pies Cafe, located in downtown New Albany. This Groupon can also be used toward catering.
Patticakes' menu features sweet and savory flavors and more than 30 different panini sandwiches. The egg-, ham-, onion-, and pepper-stuffed Western Scrambler panini ($4.95) and the sweeter apple-pie panini ($4.50) satisfy bready cravings, and fast-breaking specialties, such as the vanilla-infused cinnamon-bread Sunnyside french toast ($4.49) with a side order of Patticakes' fresh-baked cinnamon rolls ($1.99), make traditional meal lovers smile. Herbivores and herbivoyeurs can dive fork-first into various salads, such as the corn and avocado salad, which is rich with spinach, turkey, bacon, and veggies and is drizzled with a honey-gorgonzola vinaigrette ($5.99, whole). If a full meal isn't on your to-do list, the cozy café—with its candy-colored pastel walls and dog-friendly atmosphere—is a welcoming place to pop in for an impromptu slice of Patticakes’ homemade pie, whose selection rotates daily.
Patticakes & Pies Cafe was featured in the Evening News and Tribune:
- Salads, soups and specialty paninis are some of the selections at Patticake. Breakfast will be a primary focus though, with patticakes instead of pancakes and French toast, biscuits and gravy and a variety of parfaits. Then there are the desserts: Apple pie, zucchini and carrot cake — even beet cake, all dependent on the season, as Cianci uses fresh vegetables and fruits from local producers for her selections if possible. – Daniel Suddeath, Evening News and Tribune
