The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of epicurious monarchs, but all they found were heaps of boring, inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon at Pond House Café, located in Elizabeth Park. Featuring fresh, organic ingredients, Pond House Café crafts a seasonal menu of inventive lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch fare in an airy, verdant environment. Plant yourself like a wailing mandrake root in the outdoor garden patio during the warmer months, or snuggle up inside during snow-dusted days. Reservations, though not required, are recommended.
