A good cafe isn't just the perfect place to practice close-up magic on unsuspecting patrons; it's also a great spot to meet friends and share Burton Gilliam gossip. Today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of cafe eats for $10 at Rhode Island Reds Cafe in Hyattsville. Reds is part green grocer, part bakery, part cafe, and wholly game-changing with Italian cinema once a week and occasional art shows in the commodious space. Today's deal lets you dine in the charming cafe surroundings or take the heady aroma of fresh pizza pie home to your hungry family of pot-bellied ferrets.
More than a breeding ground for revolution, hip hats, and lovelorn sea turtles, Rhode Island Reds keeps your mitochondria busy with a mouthwatering menu of gourmet pizzas, homemade soups, salads, signature sandwiches, wine, beer, and more. Reds is renowned for its Roman-style thin-crust pizzas (eight slices of gormondo tomato pie cost $10). Try the Broforino, made with garlic pesto sauce, onions, anchovies, and fresh tomatoes; or dine on a prosciutto, pineapple, mozzarella, and tomato-herb gravy pie. Sandwiches ($6.50 each) such as the Joe Di Maggio (a salami sandwich on a baguette with mozzarella, tomatoes, and garlic pesto dressing) or the Black Friday (turkey breast and Swiss with a smear of cranberry sauce on rye bread) are served weekdays until 3 p.m. Customize your sandwich's condiments or design the entire thing yourself; Reds' ingredients are fresh, usually organic, and often locally sourced. Plus, there are vegetarian and vegan options available.
Balance an espresso ($1.90) with biscotti ($1.25) or a slice of pie ($3) on top of your lunch to Jenga satisfaction. The comfortable, artistic atmosphere is amenable to lingering, so hang around to see what's going on—in addition to movies, there are children and family events, special prix fixe dinner parties, and Mediterranean-themed happenings at Reds. Call ahead to learn more.
