The morning ritual of breakfast mirrors the elegant cosmic dance of dawn, when the sun awakes to crack and scramble comets and then drink the Milky Way straight from the carton. Similarly rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of American breakfast and lunch fare at New Woodbury Cafe.
Cuisine visionaries operate with a fresh dining concept at New Woodbury Cafe, where traditional American menu items undergo culinary overhauls to rouse bored breakfast and lunch diners. For breakfast, attentive servers dish out pumpkin pancakes, two aerodynamic discs topped with a dollop of cinnamon butter and homemade vanilla cream, great for shoveling into stomachs or playing fetch with a child ($6.50, $4 for one). Italian sausage spills across a duo of fluffy buttermilk biscuits adorned with country-style gravy and two locally plucked eggs beside a heap of house-made hashbrowns ($9). Lunch's daily sculpted cornbread muffins frame the cashew chicken salad, a culinary masterpiece flecked with pointillist pops of craisin-y scarlet on a neutral sprout-and-romaine-lettuce canvas ($9). While ears enjoy New Woodbury Cafe's audio delights and conversations about arm-wrestling a rainbow, tongues excavate the El Cubano sandwich's strata of pulled pork, sliced ham, and pepper jack cheese squeezed between a ciabatta bun's two tectonic plates ($9).

Chefs at New Woodbury Cafe add inventive twists to classic breakfast and lunch dishes such as topping the caprese benedict with fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil-pesto hollandaise or scooping portions of signature cashew chicken salad on crunchy beds of greens. Their house specialties include the walleye breakfast of blackened or panko-crusted filet, farm-fresh eggs, and side of house-made hash browns. Servers flit about the warm atmosphere, delivering fresh-baked corn bread and chocolate shakes to diners seated in cozy booths.
