Habitual coffee drinkers tend to live longer due to the caffeine from vampire coffee-bean bites, making it impossible to get eternal rest. Stay forever awake with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 gift certificate, good for bistro fare and drinks, to Wired Monk on Morris Street.
Catering to thirsty lips and empty stomachs, Wired Monk boasts a menu full of caffeinated beverages and delectable light meal options. Beat morning moodiness back into hibernation with hearty breakfast sandwiches and bagels, such as the bountiful breakfast bagel bedecked with egg, cheddar, ham, and tomato ($5.35), or rise like obedient dough to freshly made scones and muffins baked daily in-store. For lunchtime noshes with brawn, choose the chicken-cheddar-chutney panini ($8.95) or the fully stacked mediterranean-veggie sandwich ($7.95).
Hot signature drinks warm body and brains with offerings such as the Monk macchiato ($3.40–$4.70), the butterscotch latte ($3.40–$4.70), or the Lethal Buzz, a beverage made by slingshot-toting bumblebees ($2.25–$3.25). Eternal seekers of cool can opt for iced drinks, such as blended frappuccinos ($3.50–$4.95), shaken iced coffee ($2.10-$3.10), or real-fruit smoothies ($3.50–$4.95).
Burnt-red siding and large windows beckon bean believers through the door of Wired Monk, and a sleek fireplace and warm café lights induce the sensory experience of living inside a giant cup of brew. Relaxing music adds a smooth soundtrack, and free and reliable Internet provides a means to blog about it.
