Lecturing your dachshund nonstop on the pros and cons of converting your front yard into a Pat Sajak–themed mini-golf course is bound to make you thirsty after a while. Today's Groupon offers the perfect moistener for dry throats and mouths. For $10, you get $20 worth of coffee or tea at Rochambo Coffee & Tea House.
Let tea become a new safe place to let your humanity glow like a burning pile of old National Geographic magazines. The East Brady Street coffee and tea house offers more than 70 teas by the cup, pot, or ounce, with green, black, scented black, white, periwinkle, herbal, jasmine, and oolong teas priced by their degrees of rarity. House teas, such as the mountain huckleberry or Japanese sencha, go for $1.75 a cup, while $2.75 will put a steaming cup of one of the rare selections, like the organic white plum berry, into your tired hands. Extra-rare offerings, such as the white silver needles tea, go for $3.75 a cup, and all teas are available by the ounce for home-brewed delight. If coffee is what you crave, Rochambo's selection of more than a dozen syrupy sweeteners are on hand to flavor any coffee (starting at $1.40 for a small mug) or espresso ($2.40 and up) concoction, while its specialty coffee creations—including a Summer Sun Latte with honey, butterscotch, and caramel ($3.95), or the Almond Joy mocha, infused with almond and coconut ($3.95)—tempt palates in need of a buzz. Booze-infused specialty coffee drinks, such as the Mood Ring, with Crater Lake hazelnut espresso vodka, Vermeer Dutch Chocolate Cream Liqueur, and a dollop of whipped cream ($6), make for a soothing treat any time before the clock strikes midnight, when Rochambo closes its night-owl-friendly shop every night.
Art nouveau trim adorning the floor-to-ceiling windows will take you back to childhoods selling banana clips on the streets of Paris, while the canary-yellow walls, free WiFi, and charming outdoor seating make Rochambo an ideal spot to relax, study, or gather with friends over a steaming hot beverage after a stressful day of making glass from fresh lakefront sand.

- This is for when you want that coffee, but also a charming space to hang out with friends, a book, the internet, or that Scrabble board with missing letters Sharpie-d on to wood pieces. – Meena V., Yelp
