Poetry would be composed entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $5, you get $12 worth of sweet and savory baked goods and bistro fare at Sweet Savory Café & Bakery. Visit either the San Dimas or Covina location, where expert kitchen-fingers craft fresh and healthy café cuisine for every meal of the day.
A family-owned-and-operated shop, Sweet Savory Café & Bakery uses time-honored secret recipes to create the scrumptious breads, cookies, paninis, pastas, and breakfast bites on the menu. Mishmash the morning with eggs, corn, and swiss cheese in a Harvest Scrambler ($6.99), or top the sunrise with cream cheese, onion, tomato, jalapeño, and avocado on a breakfast bagel ($3.99). A hearty 2.5-pound loaf of freshly baked sourdough bread ($4.95) or a two-pound wheat loaf ($4.75) makes for highly desirable tokens in a barter-based economy. The café serves fresh and healthy cold, hot, and panini sandwiches in addition to salads and pasta for lunch. Snag the new mozzarella Reuben with sauerkraut and thousand-island dressing ($7.99) or stand by as fettuccini parties with chicken breast in a pasta bowl with caper strobe lights and a creamy white sauce that won't let the cops inside without a warrant ($9.89).
Goldenrod tiles and a charming eating area give excellent views over glass display tables of freshly prepared treats. Order a blended chilled mocha ($3.45 for 16 oz.) or a frozen strawberry lemonade ($2.60 for 20 oz.) while you watch dessert's dainty caravan carry a smattering of luscious confections, including scones by the dozen ($23.65) and vanilla cupcakes with fudge or cream-cheese frosting ($16.50 per dozen, 24-hour notice required). A pantry and a breadbox are overachieving storage spaces that need floury sustenance, so stock up on Sweet Savory's sweets and savories.
Advanced notices of 24 hours require a minimum order of one dozen per item.
