Cake & the Bean Stalk

So as you all know, I love to get deals from Groupon, Living Social, Eversave, etc so that I can try out some new places around the city. It’s hard to believe we’ve already been living in the city for 10 months now, and there’s so many places we haven’t been yet. A while ago I bought a Groupon for Cake & the Bean Stalk, which is located at 1112 Locust Street in Philadelphia.

It was a beautiful morning for a walk, so I set out to use my Groupon and check out the place. I had $10 to spend and I was able to get breakfast [Everything Bagel w/ Cream Cheese $2.00], Coffee [price depends on size and what you order], and two desserts to go.  I think that everything was priced very well.

They have a very nice set up. When you go in the door there are some dessert/food cases set up near the register, and the sitting area is separated by a wall, which is nice. There is a little outside patio with chairs if you choose to sit out there, and there are a number of tables inside to choose from. It’s got a really cool vibe. The mismatched chairs at the tables give it a nice look.

They have many different beverages to choose from, as well as a number of freshly baked desserts like cookies, brownies, cakes, and a number of other sweets.  They also have Paninis! I was there a little too early for one though. They often have special deals, so be sure to follow them on Twitter.  I chose the Brownie [$2.50 - and it's quite large; you can choose with nuts or without] and the Blondie [$2.50 - and like the brownie it's quite large] as my to-go desserts.

The Brownie was delicious – nice and fudgy – exactly how I like them!

The Blondie was amazing; It was packed full of Reese’s Pieces!

Colorful chairs & table

Who wouldn’t want to stop in?

Cake and the Bean Stalk has Free WiFi, so feel free to take your laptop or other mobile device and stop in for a beverage, sandwich and dessert! Definitely pick up a Blondie and a Brownie – they’re amazing!  I’ll definitely stop back in for more desserts, and I want to try some of their iced beverages. It’s hot out there!

DEAL ALERT: Keratin Treatment

I need to go off-topic for a moment. Back in February I posted (see that post here) about how I got the Keratin treatment done at Bernard’s Salon in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. It was a life-changing experience and I don’t know how I survived without the Keratin treatment in the past.  My hair is so much healthier and definitely easier to manage. I’ve been telling myself that in the next month or so it’s time to get another treatment done. I had my first treatment done about 4 months ago, and I feel like it’s getting time for another. Rosa did an amazing job on my hair and I look forward to her doing this process again.

So imagine my happiness when I saw that today’s Groupon is for a Keratin treatment at Bernard’s Salon! Click here to get the awesome deal! You get the Keratin treatment, highlights, and a one-hour blow dry styling for $199! This is an awesome deal.  This deal doesn’t last forever though – you must get it by Thursday June 2nd at 11:59pm.
