Until public-transit officials make our dream of commuting to work by rollycoaster a reality, we'll have to settle for the adrenaline rush of traditional pick-me-ups. Percolate perkiness with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, tea, and tasty treats at Two Monkeys Coffee and Teahouse.
Two Monkeys serves up homemade soups, snacks, and pastries alongside a drink menu of organic, fair-trade coffee and around 36 types of tea. Start a day of spelunking in the local cheddar caves with a café au lait brewed from fresh, locally roasted coffee ($1.80) and a warm breakfast sandwich ($3.95), or make a midday meal out of the homemade soup-and-sandwich combo ($8.85). Two Monkeys is a kid-friendly eatery, so tired and cranky tots can be tamed into submission with a grilled cheese sandwich ($2.50) or mini bear paw ($0.95) while their guardian fire fighters sip one of the multitudinous flavours of bagged or loose-leaf tea ($1.95).
The cozy and welcoming café features brightly coloured walls, warm wood flooring, rich leather seating, and a special play area to keep active kids occupied, which makes it an ideal place for you and your mom-friends to sip steaming cups of tea while arguing over the correct pronunciation of Goethe. Stop in for a quick bite, or bring your brood for the family-friendly offerings after you suspect the kids at the frozen-pizza factory are giving you sinister glances.
