Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of coffee, ice cream, beer and wine, and deli fare at The Witch's Brew in Palm Harbor.
Organic, locally roasted coffee mingles with an eclectic assortment of classic deli fare, locally crafted ice-cream treats, and imported beers and local wine on The Witch's Brew's voluminous menu. A cappuccino or latte ($2.75–$3.00) caffeinates diners before they flex their mandibles on the Sweet Matilda "Sand Witch," which enlists chicken salad, egg salad, tuna, or turkey to assist spring-mix greens, tomato, and cucumber in preparing for their date with balsamic-vinegar dressing ($6). The Witch's Brew also doles out all-natural frozen desserts, crafted at Tampa's Old Meeting House Ice Cream. Counsel taste buds to elect from more than a dozen flavors such as key lime or black raspberry chocolate chunk. Luscious sundaes sport walnuts; whipped cream; your choice of pineapple, chocolate, or strawberry topping; and a dapper fez ($4–$6).
Worldly palates can bathe in Hobgoblin Ale ($5) and Wychcraft Ale ($6) imported from England, while more local-minded tasters can opt for any of three berry-fueled flavors of Murielle Wine from Clearwater ($5/glass). On Friday and Saturday nights, live music drifts across The Witch's Brew's cozy outdoor patio.
