Unlike cinematic love scenes, cuisine can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon to Worth It Cafe in Durham. Choose between the following options:
Owned by husband and wife Chuck and Aileen Hayworth, Worth It Cafe appeases appetites of all types with a mouthwatering menu of café fare and delectable to-go dinner entrees made from fresh, local ingredients. Starved stomachs fill up on soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps, paninis, and pizza in the café for lunch, and at-home dinner tables are covered with Worth It Cafe's catered homemade meals and gourmet sides.
Dinner-diners can savor apple-brandy beef pot roast ($12.99; serves two) in living rooms or recreational space vehicles, while bone-in chicken cacciatore ($10.99; serves two) makes for a perfect shared meal with your most romantically interested imaginary friend. Each dinner can be paired with sides to split, such as smashed sweet potatoes ($3; serves two) and sautéed organic greens ($3; serves two). Dinner-to-go orders should be placed by 3 p.m. and arranged for pickup at a later time that same day.
Lunch-minded gourmands greet taste buds with the chicken parmesan handwich—farmhouse bread hollowed out and stuffed with crispy chicken and topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and slapped silly with marinara ($6.99)—and amateur geometrists can practice their Euclidean theory using the circumference of savory grilled veggie pizzas rounded out with marinated veggies and topped with obtuse angles of melted goat cheese ($6.99). Available in doughy bread bowls or less pliable vessels, servings of fresh soup ($2.99) such as tomato-basil bisque and mama’s chicken noodle ease the sorrow caused by delicious meal endings.
Worth It Cafe is open Monday through Friday for Lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and for Dinner-to-go from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Dinner orders should be placed by 3 p.m.

Worth It Café
While flipping through television channels, you might spot Chuck Hayworth slicing up spaghetti squash or sculpting a vegan meatball on his own cooking show, Thankfully Local. The skilled chef is a passionate proponent of eating locally sourced foods, having overcome stomach cancer on a diet of farm-fresh produce and fruits. In the kitchen of Worth It Café, Chef Chuck works with a colorful array of fresh ingredients—95% of which originated from local North Carolina purveyors. To craft his signature "stuffwiches", Chuck packs hollowed-out farmhouse bread with barbeque pulled pork, crispy chicken, and house-roasted beef.
Diners gather around tabletops in the cafe's airy seating area, sipping freshly brewed iced tea and lingering over last bites of freshly baked brownies. Some opt to grab one of Chuck's takeaway dinners—such as chicken pot pie or spinach lasagna—to bring home and enjoy with their family or the pack of wild dogs they've come to love like a family.
