With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: $4 gets you $8 worth of fresh, fast fare at the Virgin Olive Market on either North Orange Avenue or West Church Street. Your Groupon is valid for dine-in only.
The neighborhood noshery serves up fast-casual fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is an ideal place to linger over a fresh lunch or scarf up sustenance before a tap-dance battle. Break your nightly fast with an order of the Nutella Belgian waffle with strawberries ($5.50) or a pair of Virgin Olive's breakfast tacos ($3.25+) loaded with eggs, cheese, and salsa. The lunch and dinner offerings include savory sandwiches—available either hot or cold—and scrumptious salads. Herbivores looking for a hearty hand-held meal will enjoy the Flower Child, a swiss cheese and cucumber sandwich seasoned with roasted pumpkin seeds and veggies and a spread of apricot cream cheese ($5.50), while the carnivorally inclined will quell red-meat cravings with The Brute, a roast beef and havarti concoction on ciabatta ($6.50). Salads offer vitamin-enhanced eats such as the Olive Oyl, which blankets baby spinach leaves with turkey breast, gorgonzola cheese, walnuts, and fresh strawberries and pears ($5.95), or the fresh mozzarella, tomato, olive, and basily caprese ($5.95).
Each Virgin Olive Market outpost boasts a natural, granola vibe, with cold cases of grab-it-yourself beverages and a smattering of indoor and outdoor seats for a catch-up dinner with a pal or a quick lunch in between interrogations.
