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 organic, fair-trade coffee, specialty beverages, and bakery bites at Vintage Timeless Coffee on NW 150th.
Vintage serves a menu full of organic, fair-trade beanjuice in nearly every form and flavor the first coffee bush imagined when it reached its leaves toward the newborn sun. A classic brewed coffee, medium, dark, or decaf, costs $2 for 12 ounces, and a foamy cappuccino costs $3 for 12 ounces. To usher the brain back into reality after a night dreaming of steel children and living motorcycles, Vintage's 3-Bomb of brewed coffee, espresso, and energy mix ($3.50/12-ounce) is a superb beany brew. Amplify flavors with specialty kicks such as the Lucky Charm (Irish cream, toffee, and green sprinkles, $0.75) or classic flavorsplosions such as hazelnut syrup ($0.25). Hot apple cider ($2/12-ounce) and spicy chai tea ($2/20-ounce) appease coffee-averse esophagi, and a changing selection of pastries from Brown's Bakery and baked sandwiches and sausage rolls from Kolache Kitchen are available on a daily basis.
From a leggy stool at Vintage's long coffee bar, summer afternoons drift by as pleasantly as a runaway weather balloon toting a dozing scientist. Eye the art popping off the earth-toned walls, strike up conversation with the friendly barista, or tap your toes to the beat of live music, which is scheduled periodically. Because you may use your Groupon over multiple visits, you can caffeinate multiple evenings or mornings at Vintage.
- Friendly service and excellent coffee makes for a winning combination. – Ben, Urbanspoon
- Very nice place, clean and Great Coffee. Wi-Fi functions well. Try the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich, YUM! – Voco, Urbanspoon
- I'd much rather support this local place than the big conglomerates. Plus, every drink, hot or cold, that I've had there has surpassed anything I could get at other non-local shops. – regivizz, Urbanspoon
