What You'll Get
Poetry would be comprised entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $5, you get $10 worth of handcrafted goodies from the Café at Sam's Bakery in Bay Ridge.
Following time-honored family recipes, the close-knit clan that mans the Café at Sam's Bakery whips up fresh batches of Middle East–inspired sweets and savories. All items are made from scratch daily, ensuring top-notch taste and texture. Handcrafted spinach pies ($7 for four pieces) are flavorful enough to energize a whole hot tub full of pruned and shrunken sailormen, while protein-packed lamb pies ($7 for four pieces) offer an elegant alternative to lunchtime hamburgers and pb&lamb sandwiches; both pie varieties are served with a side of hummus or babaghannouj. Students studying for their first rounds of exams can fuel their flashcard-flipping fingers with healthy heaps of tabouleh ($6 for 8 ounces) and wood-roasted organic coffee ($1.84–$2.30). Reward each correct answer with a bite of sweet baklava ($6 for three pieces), or accelerate your success rate by upgrading to a fancy barista beverage such as a vanilla-cream iced frappe ($3.80 for a small).
Sam's only recently added its Bay Ridge brick-and-mortar address to its business card, as the family-owned bakery started as a purely online business. Paying homage to its Internet-based roots, however, The Café at Sam's Bakery offers free WiFi to all customers, an abundance of easily accessible outlets, and a warm, friendly environment in which families and friends are welcome to let loose and LOL.
