Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of coffee, sandwiches, salads, and more at R&R Coffee Café, quaintly tucked in the Black Forest Square. This Groupon is not valid toward R&R Coffee Café’s sign-language classes.
Keen coffee seekers stray from the most beaten bean path to escape to R&R for specialty brews and the café's namesake rest and relaxation. R&R roasts its own artisan coffee in small batches to ensure maximum freshness and pairs it with a full menu of bakery bites and gourmet café fare. Give your day a sweet start with a freshly baked cinnamon roll ($2.25) or a decadent strawberry-shortcake latté ($3.70, 16 ounces), or opt for a savory skillet breakfast ($5.50) with your choice of meat, rosemary potatoes, tomato, onion, green chilies, and two eggs. Come midday, munch on a smoky BLT on homemade sourdough with a side salad ($5.25). A long list of gussied-up espresso drinks ($3.05–$4.35), frothy, java-based frappes (starting at $4.95), fresh-fruit smoothies ($3.95, 16 ounces), and ice-cream shakes ($3.25) make excellent desserts, stand-alone snacks, and bribes for a better number at the DMV.
R&R Coffee Café is closed on Sunday.
