Among ways to start the morning, eating a balanced breakfast is second only to jogging with the sheep you counted the night before. Get your stomach off on the right foot with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of breakfast and lunch fare at Skillets.
Inside Skillets's pine-decked dining hall, a crew of cooks populates a lengthy menu with house-made breakfast plates and lunchtime feasts, all made from scratch using fresh ingredients. Lift grumpy moods out of the morning's fog with the potato egger skillet ($8.50), which plates two smoky, thick-cut slices of bacon and two made-to-order eggs alongside perfectly crisped potatoes or stone-ground grits. Or opt out of carbs by snarfing a no-carb skillet ($10) concocted with four scrambled eggs and a trio of meats—ham, bacon, and sausage—each of which is accompanied by a cheese shaped like a famous carbohydrate. While dismantling a stack of three buttermilk or whole-wheat pancakes ($7), diners can wring caffeine from a steaming cup of Guatemalan coffee ($2) or tip back a chalice of tangy fresh-squeezed lemonade ($2.75). For lunch, fingers are welcome to wrap themselves around a cuban panini ($9.50) teeming with succulent ham, turkey, and swiss or pinch a half-pound philly cheese steak ($10.50) dressed in provolone and grilled onions.
