What You'll Get
While broccoli's impeccable tree imitation instantly impresses admirers, the split pea wins hearts by hiding and slowly unclothing its inner edibles. Today's Groupon gets you $10 worth of Split Pea Seduction's fresh lunchtime takeout for $5. The daily changing selection of hot soups, crisp salads, flaky crostatas, and properly fastened sandwiches on Split Pea's menu invite appetites to a garden bounty.
Split Pea's chefs choose the freshest produce from small farms every day to create eclectic plates such as chicken and rice with avocado soup (12 oz. for $4.75). Try a roasted cauliflower crostata (an open-faced sweet or savory pastry baked golden-brown) with shaved fennel and parmesan ($6.99). Salads such as a baby spinach bowl (with roasted yams, peanuts, and fresh mozzarella in a rice-wine vinaigrette, $5.99 for a small) or mixed greens with blood oranges, roasted almonds, and blue cheese in a tarragon and fennel vinaigrette ($5.99 for a small) satisfy any fresh-leaf craving and some forms of coryza. Split Pea's sandwich creations include roasted natural chicken with red slaw, aioli, and pickled cukes on a house bun ($5.99). Plus, everything can be custom combined; get a 12-ounce soup and half a crostata for $8.50 or sandwich and 16-ounce soup for $11.50.

The SF Weekly says:
- Split Pea Seduction offers all kinds of combinations (whole crostatas or halves with soup or salad), nicely packed to go, or you can consume them on the spot...Atop the glass-fronted case displaying the long crostatas are jars full of such just-baked treats as blueberry scones, small buttermilk cakes topped with whipped cream and chopped plums, and cookies, including, perhaps, a fragrant anise butter cookie, a dense chocolate chew, or an old-fashioned coconut thumbprint filled with housemade jam. – Meredith Brody
- ..this oasis of delicious hope and promise serves up hot oven baked crostatas, nutritious soups, fresh lettuce salads, and yummy cookies from a daily revolving menu...Delicious, nutritious, and satisfying, I recommend stoppong [sic] in for a high quality meal or snack. – Richard Clingerman, Urbanspoon
- It's a great new green (super green as in local, organic, seasonal) lunch spot...I will be back to try everything. – Netty L., Sustain Lane
- The crostata was INSANE - buttery, gooey, so savory and delicious. The salad was super fresh and crunchy and the flavors really complimented each other. It was the most satisfying lunch I've had in a loooong time if not ever. – March S., Yelp
