Ever since America lost custody of tea in its messy divorce with England, we've had to find new liquid sources of caffeine and new neighborhood taxmen. Say no to taxation without caffeination with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffees, wraps, and more at Vanillas Coffee Tea Café, located in the Plainfield Plaza.
Vanillas Coffee Tea Café serves a plethora of caffeinated concoctions and herbaceous teas, complemented with a full menu of wrapped sandwiches. The café offers several types of coffees ($1.50–$1.75) in its brewed arsenal, as well as a bruising bullpen of elaborate espresso drinks, such as mochas ($3.60) and full-flavored ristrettos ($1.75). Chase coffee with a grilled-chicken sandwich ($5.50), enhanced with sun-dried tomatoes and provolone and feta cheese, or a Michigan salad ($5.50), mixed with gorgonzola and dried fruits. Customers bearing the limited-edition, quickly abandoned Tony Orlando one-dollar bill can still find sustenance on the dollar menu, with low-priced pabulum such as a toasted honey croissant ($1) or a vanilla cupcake ($1). The café's specialty sweets also put smiles on the faces of stomachs, with specialty cookies ($15 for a dozen) and chocolate-dipped strawberries ($10 for a dozen) ready to stuff tummies. Java junkies can take home a pound of whole-bean or ground coffee ($8.50–$9.75), with an organic option available.
Vanillas Coffee Tea Café frequently hosts live music, with professional acts such as singer-songwriter Ashley Renay and pop-rockers Life Beyond Shadows recently playing free shows at the coffeehouse. Soak up the café's multi-colored chalkboard and interspersed artwork while sipping coffee with your real-life stunt double.
