Much like a massage from a cat, coffee helps people to wake up, enlivens morning routines, and can be painful against bare skin. Keep a lid on your morning with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a punch card valid for five medium lattes at Shakespeare and Company in Kernersville (up to an $18.95 value).
Opening at 8 a.m. Monday through Thursday and at 10 a.m. on Saturdays, Shakespeare and Company's bookworm baristas infuse steamy espresso drinks and signature beverages with more than 40 flavors. A quintet of foamy medium lattes allows ample opportunity to sample sweet infusions individually, or opt for preselected concoctions, such as Juliet's Cup with a chocolate-cherry-amaretto kick or the caramel and cinnamon of a mug filled with Midsummer Night's Dream. Espresso shots, like the container of cotton balls at the doctor's office, are also yours for the taking at no additional charge.
Perked up ears drink in the dulcet tones of live music on Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Fridays from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. as customers kick back beside the brick courtyard's fountain. Inside the shop, inner bibliophiles can bury their noses in a book while inner mustaches get foamy.
