Unlike speedy, in-and-out fast-food joints, cafes indulge languorous fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets with the handsome tobacconist sipping an espresso mysteriously in the corner. Satiate and mentally rendezvous with today's Groupon. For $10, you'll get $20 worth of deluxe and organic burgers, salads, sandwiches, and more at Sage Gourmet Cafe & Market in the downtown Deep Deuce District.
Sage's lunch menu indulges your childlike culinary pleasures with grown-up versions that will make you feel wildly sophisticated even when you're feasting on the fare of five-year-olds. Five types of mac 'n' cheese, all served with a Waldorf salad, range from the indulgent (three-cheese, $9) to the unexpected (Greek 'n' cheese with feta, diced tomatoes, and kalamata olives, $10). Avocado-seafood salad starring grilled shrimp and scallops atop a bedding of baby mixed greens, red onion, and broccoli florets ($11) provides a protein-packed midday munch. You can also spike a Sage club sandwich (roast turkey, roast beef, turkey bacon, baby lettuce, tomatoes, and sharp cheddar, $10) or a Western burger (barbecue sauce, cheddar, red onions, turkey bacon, $11) with selections from the salt bar. Sage offers a variety of premium sea salts, from apricot-hued Murray River to oceanic Cyprus Flake to the tropical coconut-and-lime-flavored Bali Smoked. Choose three with your meal for $2. Sage's dinner menu features the same items with different pricing.
Gastrominded duo Kevin and Charifa Smith opened their eatery with the intent to root an upscale café amongst the buzzy businesses in their jazzy neighborhood. Sage is housed in the Littlepage Building, which served as a hotel for musical icons including Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, and Charlie Christian. That historic foundation injects delightful added character into one's gourmet gourmandizing, much like writing a wise-cracking crustacean doctor into a cartoon show. With today's Groupon, you can also stop in for the Saturday brunch and fill up on whole and hearty grains, waffles, and frittatas. Sage is closed on Sundays.

- The fact that Sage is also a ”market” did peek [sic] my interest since OKC has a dearth of healthy, organic markets...In spite of its size, they do offer a selection of goods that can’t be found at your normal supermarket or Wal-Mart. They feature locally grown organic foods, a nice selection of cheeses, gourmet dressings, organic coffee, oils, and even beer...Overall, Sage offers unique dining, a convenient gourmet market and mini-deli, a pretty nice bar and some pretty good desserts choices. – Sam Lee, Oklahoma City Restaurants
- The food was amazing, I had gotten the steak and potato soup and shrimp and grits. The service was great, my server was very informative and I appreciated the down-to-earth personality that I didn't anticipate from their formal attire. – Ophelia, Urbanspoon
- Everything here is just delicious...The tuna was fresh and very tasty, the greens were all crisp and flavorful. The hummus was delicious, not oily and mushy, but packed with flavor and a bit firm...everything on the menu is made on the premises, so the dressings are fabulous. The meats are all organic, as are all the greens they serve...The pastries are all to die for. Atmosphere and service were both great… – CASEY, Urbanspoon
- Everything is fresh...They are famous for their mac n' cheese, which is definitely hearty and rich. They have a nice range of organic beer as well. – Emilia D., Yelp
