Soup is like the grandmother of meals: warm, comforting, and enjoyable with or without teeth. Slurp a matriarchal meal with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get a café lunch for two at The Shade Tree Cafe in Pearland (up to a $30.27 total value including tax). Each guest gets the following:
- One bowl of soup (a $5.99 value)
- Choice of salad, sandwich, or panini (up to a $7.99 value)<p>
Ingredient whisperers at The Shade Tree Cafe transform family recipes into a homestyle menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches made from scratch daily. Guests can dip spoons into soulful spicy-chicken-vegetable or broccoli-cheese soup, which warms taste buds as they sort the subtle flavors of fresh broccoli florets, creamy american cheese, and aged cheddar eligible for its AARP card. All-white-meat chicken breast weds creamy mayo to create the popular chicken-salad sandwich, and guests who prefer thermal handhelds can opt for the turkey melt, which oozes with mozzarella, pesto, and buttered charm. Piles of mandarin oranges, strawberries, and walnuts, all dressed in scratch-made raspberry vinaigrette, play hide-and-seek within a lush green jungle of spring mix in the Shade Tree salad. The cozy café recently extended its hours to accommodate the strenuous work schedules of hungry sunrays.
