Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock and roll, yin and yang, and bald eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of coffee, treats, drinks, and American bistro fare at Têtê-à-Têtê Café in Sheepshead Bay.
Têtê-à-Têtê customers sup exotic coffee and tea options alongside gourmet pastries and sandwiches in the bistro’s sleek, art-deco-inspired downstairs cafe. The menu of breakfast variations includes choices such as the portobello and swiss cheese omelette ($6.95), which can be put on a croissant ($5.35), wrap ($6.35), or crepe ($7.95). Replenish nutrients after a serious session of urban wakeboarding with lunch paninis and wraps including the caprese, complete with fresh mozzarella, oven-roasted tomatoes, and fresh basil ($6.75).
Like a genteel haberdasher riding on the shoulders of a barista, Têtê-à-Têtê’s upstairs area converts to a lounge space with dinner entrees and signature martinis. Nosh on tilapia with mashed potatoes and unmashed veggies ($12.95), or try out lobster ravioli bathed in pink vodka sauce ($13.95). Dessert mousse cakes, including the passion fruit mousse with vanilla sponge cake, mirror glaze, and jaconde ($5.95), cap off a meal that would otherwise feel as unfinished as the sequel to Titanic.
