Ancient Egyptian philosopher Amenemope famously said, "Better is bread with a happy heart than wealth with vexation or a bubble bath with a mall Santa." Celebrate life's greatest staple food in all its forms with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of deli fare and baked goods at Patty’s Place Deli Bakery in Chesapeake.
Equal parts sweet-smelling bakery and sandwich shop, Patty’s Place silences midday stomach swearing with a deli menu packed with paninis, hearty sandwiches, and salads. The Wild Cat club piles turkey, ham, bacon, swiss, and cheddar atop toasted bread ($7.49). Staples such as the loaded BLT ($6.99) share space with reimagined favorites such as the cheddar, provolone, and creamy swiss mélange of the grown-up grilled cheese, served with a selection of investment brochures ($6.59). Patty's Friday night dinner specials treat evening eaters to an entree that rotates weekly, sidelined by seasoned green beans, a fluffy yeast roll, and a choice of salad, mac 'n' cheese, or mashed potatoes.
For dessert, mosey over to the bakery corner of Patty's cozy interior for bakery selections such as the local favorite, pie cakes. These fresh-baked confections might bake an apple pie inside a spice cake or conceal a riddle within an enigma within a cherry pie within a velvety chocolate cake. Equally renowned are Patty's cake balls, which wrap moist bites of cake inside Ghirardelli chocolate ($3.99/box of six). As with its homemade cookies, breads, and muffins, Patty's bakes everything fresh from the mysterious substance known as scratch, which is only produced by sandworms on a distant desert planet
