Unlike watching cinematic love scenes, food can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon to Shedd Cafe. Choose between the following two options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of lunch fare.
- For $15, you get a family-style reservation dinner for two (up to a $60 value).
Owned by a group of local farmers, Shedd Cafe is a friendly home-style eatery that sources the majority of its produce and proteins from local farms within 12 miles of its location. A lunch menu favorite is the farmer burger, topped with cheese, a fried egg, a John Deere ball cap, and your choice of ham or bacon on a homemade bun ($8.50). Shedd Cafe can also stuff your body’s crawlspace with a variety of sandwiches and fresh soups. The reservation dinner makes a family-style meal more about food and company than who can scream louder about not cleaning dishes. The menu varies at each of these Saturday farmer feasts, and everything from drinks to dessert is included with your reservation dinner. Although alcohol is not served, consuming dishes like those served at past reservation dinners—chicken and dumplings, barbecue tri-tip, and an orchard-themed meal—usually reproduces alcohol’s extreme feelings of sleepy euphoria. The next scheduled reservation dinners are February 25, March 12, April 2, April 23, and May 7.
