A coffee shop is a great place to get work done without being actively social but still feeling completely social. Use today's Groupon to be productive in the comfort of the crowd instead of alone at home. For $10, you get $20 toward anything edible and drinkable (does not include intangibly consumable events) at Peace & A Cup of Joe. You can snag up to three Groupons, which will be converted into gift cards the first time you head into the quaint, independent shop. These will act just as regular gift cards act, with composure and class. Groupons are also good toward daily specials.
Coffee is a brewed beverage prepared from the roasted seeds of the coffee plant, and the coffee at Peace & A Cup of Joe is freshly brewed and moderately priced. Sizes range from tall ($1.45) to venti ($1.85) and come in three varieties. Add a dime to any hot coffee to get its iced counterpart, just like switching between Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Get a morning jolt with one of their popular espressos, or have crazy dreams after downing an eye-widening double espresso macchiato ($1.65) or espresso latte ($2.60-$3.45) right before bed. If you prefer your drink prepared from leaves instead of from beans or tears, find yourself a coffee alternative such as green, herbal, or decaf tea, or sip on a livening chai. Accompany your drink with a simply satisfying café sandwich like turkey ($5) or chicken salad ($5.25). Peace also serves a variety of salads, breakfast sandwiches, and bakery items.
The work of local artists adorns the walls, creating a cozy yet stimulating atmosphere, which almost never comes to life to snatch your biscotti. Besides the aromatic draw of freshly roasted beans, the air is filled with free WiFi waves, making this a great place to study, post a Craigslist missed connection for someone sitting nearby, or just give your home Internet a holiday from all its hard work. Throughout the week, you can catch various live events, such as live music, poetry readings, and detailed reenactments of the scene in which Willy is freed.
