Coffee and baked goods have always gone together, like rock 'n' roll, yin and yang, and bald-eagle hatchlings and William Howard Taft's toupee. Introduce your mouth to a dazzling duet with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of café fare at Wholly Cannoli in Worcester.
The cooks at Wholly Cannoli obliterate cravings with a menu of casual café fare flanked by an array of creamy pastries and coffee drinks. Between the hours of 6 a.m. and 11 a.m., diners can sic their hunger on a custom breakfast sandwich, which starts with a bagel or house-made italian roll topped with two eggs and a choice of cheese ($2.75+) and can be embellished with an assortment of meats and veggies.
For lunch, the Mediterranean wrap's layers of hummus, tabouleh, and romaine lettuce proffer vegetarian protein with a Middle Eastern twist ($6.25), and the Napoli focacccia sandwich's artichoke hearts, pesto, and goat cheese deliver tastes of Italy without the need for lasagna-flavored postage stamps. Signature pastry selections such as a cherry bomb, a mass of sweetened ricotta dipped in a crunchy chocolate shell with a maraschino cherry in the middle ($16.50 for four), or classic Italian biscotti ($21 for six) snuff out sugar cravings like a fire extinguisher that sprays cotton candy. Linger over plates and continue conversations over flavored coffees and espresso drinks, which complement all of Wholly Cannoli’s eats.
