What You'll Get
Poetry would be comprised 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 $10 worth of sweets and eats at Twenty Six Divine, located just north of the Crosstown building.
Twenty Six Divine serves up a wide range of specialty homemade sweets and savories for daily meals and special events. An extensive à la carte lunch menu changes daily, like a kitschy wicked witch trying on different Dorothy heads. Past offerings have included wraps, paninis, and soups, as well as dishes such as seared beef tenderloin with bacon, caramelized onions, and roasted tomato over homemade olive bread ($6). Gourmet take-home dinners include turkey meatballs with egg noodles and creamy mushroom sauce ($6) and can also feed two people or sixteen self-sufficient automatons. Assorted fresh-baked rolls and crackers ($3–$5) are on hand daily for simple noshing, and sweet teeth can sink into specialty à la carte desserts, including marble-glazed pound cake ($3), peanut-butter chocolate cups ($3.75) and peaches 'n' cream charlotte with fresh raspberries ($4.25).
A myriad of sweets includes traditional and modern petits fours ($1.50–$3 per piece) such as cheesecake lollipops, homemade marshmallow, and coconut macaroons, and specialty cakes can be pre-ordered ($20–$140; 72 hour minimum notice required) for birthdays, anniversaries, and an overwrought first date with a tiny wedding-cake groom.
- Twenty Six Divine is kind of like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get — but you can bet it will be tasty. Owners Enan and Jennifer Meintel Parezo keep customers on their toes with a daily menu of to-go items created from what's available, what's in season, and what kind of mood they're in.. – Erica Jackson, Charleston City Paper
