Without a solid nutritional base, our hierarchy of needs would quickly begin to shed desires for elaborate hedge mazes and diamond-studded butlers. Build aspirations on a good foundation with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of breakfast fare, sandwiches, and salads at Village Café in Newton.
Village Café's open kitchen sends forth a parade of plates bearing stars of the splendid menu on their rounded shoulders. Plunge early-bird taste buds in ante-meridiem delight as spectacular as Captain Crunch's morning workout routine with the apple-cinnamon french toast ($6.29+), seasonal strawberry waffles ($7.79+), or golden cornucopia of omelettes ($5.49+). The Lumberjack Special showcases three eggs, a choice of meat, home fries, and toast needed to fill plaid bellies ($8.99), and a corona of delectable sandwiches glitters with such crusty gems as the Tuscan panini, whose golden confines brim with molten mozzarella, prosciutto, tomato, and pesto ($7.99). A wholesome array of salads shares menu space with the selection of burgers, which includes the Village Special, a masterpiece of bacon, caramelized onion, and cheese ($8.79).
