Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barista beverages, café fare, and more at Society Coffee in Harlem.
The taste team at Society Coffee creatively concocts a wide assortment of warm beverages and cuisine amid an atmosphere that conjures up thoughts of an intellectually stimulating, Enlightenment-era coffeehouse. Punch up a particle-physics paper while sipping Ethiopian yirgacheffe—a tasty, certified-organic and fair-trade coffee ($2.25)—or an organic Moroccan mint green tea ($2). After working up a voracious appetite, indulge ravenous taste buds with selections from the brunch and dinner menu, such as spicy shrimp and grits ($15) or a duo of baked eggs ($10). Society Coffee also stocks a modest roster of wine and, on select days, hosts live music performances fit for a hungry, humble king.
