Coffee is one of the most popular things to hatch from a bean, aside from fairytale beanstalks and Grover Cleveland. Enjoy brewed-bean bliss with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of coffee and more at Simply Sweet on Main, located in the Manassas train station.
Simply Sweet on Main's menu assuages caffeine cravings and voracious appetites with coffee drinks, fresh baked goods, and other mouth-filling morsels. Instead of popping in a mouth guard made of Fruit Roll-Ups, spoil sweet teeth by sipping on a caramel macchiato ($4.10 for a large) or a blended iced coffee ($3.75) available in flavors such as java chip, pumpkin spice, or white-chocolate latte. Thirsty travelers can imbibe fruitilicious smoothies ($3.75) available in mango, lemon, and passion orange guava, or the belly-warming hot chocolate ($2.90 for a large). Fresh sandwiches such as the turkey and provolone or tuna salad rest peacefully atop a mattress of fresh bread ($4.50), and Edy's ice cream ($4.75 for 3 scoops) offered in a variety of flavors slides down the tongue on a hot summer's day like a deer on a freshly waxed kitchen floor. Simply Sweet on Main further pleases patrons with free WiFi and live music on Thursday nights.
Simply Sweet on Main
In May 1932, the proud owner of Bushong’s Grocery posed for a photo in his shop, completely oblivious to the fact that in 80 years, it would have evolved into Simply Sweet on Main. Today, the coffeehouse still retains the homey air of his inviting store. Hardwood floors, worn by time and river-dancing, stretch out beneath clusters of tables, plush chairs, and a counter surrounded by whitewashed wood paneling. On colorful chalkboards, a hand-scrawled menu features coffee, espresso, and smoothies bursting with flavors such as passion orange guava or pineapple and coconut. Beverages are served with wraps, sandwiches, and paninis stuffed with meats and veggies. Soothing ears are the songs of live musicians and the soft taps of laptop keyboards as their owners surf free WiFi.
