Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafes indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with gingerbread-biscotti parking meters. Indulge in savory, street-side sips with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of cafe fare and drinks at Sky Blue Cafe in Historic Edgefield. Up to three Groupons may be purchased per person (only one may be used per table), and alcohol is only covered under the Groupon if purchased with a food order.
Open all week from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Sky Blue Cafe offers an ample menu of fresh pastries, morningtime grub, and energy-boosting beverages. Flavorful, hand-roasted Drew’s Brews coffee jump-starts palates without attaching them to batteries, while a cappuccino ($3.40) or macchiato ($2.75) gives the senses a soothing buzz. Fork-dive into a fluffy three-egg veggie omelet ($9), a breakfast burrito ($8), or a black-bean burger ($9). Sky Blue Cafe also offers sweet ways to start the day, such as stuffed French-toast pancakes with banana and white chocolate chips ($7).
Like a Richard Simmons or Jock Jams CD, coffee helps boost energy levels and is enjoyed by truck drivers worldwide. Stop by Sky Blue Cafe to make sure your day gets off to a good start while sampling delectable bites and avoiding whipping up eggs Benedict in your car during the morning commute.
- On a recent visit I particularly enjoyed the "Chadwich," a grilled cheese with bacon, fresh spinach and tomato that was toasted to perfection. Paired with an iced Americano made with local Drew's Brews coffee and a splash of vanilla, it made for a perfect people-watching brunch as I sat on the patio and watched what seemed like the entire neighborhood stroll by. – Chris Chamberlain, Nashville Scene
- This coffee shop does more than serve a good cup of Drew's Brews joe. The bistro serves breakfast all day long, and you can indulge in everything from oatmeal to eggs Benedict. – Metromix
- Good coffee, great choices of eggs and vegetarian options. I cannot think of more cozy [sic] and nice place than Sky Blue Coffeehouse in Nashville to start a Saturday brunch. – Ashwin M., Yelp
Sky Blue Cafe
A sandwich board etched with colorful chalk sits outside Sky Blue Cafe, beckoning patrons into the historic brick building with handwritten descriptions of blue cheese stuffed burgers and homemade peach cobbler. Patrons drawn in by the daily homemade specials are soon greeted by friendly baristas with steaming cups of Drew's Brews coffee and fresh-baked bagels from Bagel Face Bakery, located just down the street. The staff encourages patrons to relax for a while inside the cafe's sunny yellow walls or outside on the patio with a plateful of stuffed french toast or sandwiches. Breakfast and lunch don't end until 10 p.m., and at 5 p.m. the kitchen starts crafting dinner fare, such as portabella alfredo, wolfhouse burgers, or boiled chef's hats.
