Frugal Friday at My Favorite Cafe - Saline eatery offers breakfast or a light lunch for $5 or under
Mary Bilyeu, Contributor
The Turkey Club was generously portioned, and served with both potato chips and a pickle. It would be a great deal to split, followed perhaps by a $2 single scoop of Michigan's own Guernsey Farms Dairy ice cream, but it was also a great lunch that didn't even exceed our frugal monetary limit when serving only one hungry person.
There are so many treats at the cafe that meet our mandatory budget of $5 or less per person! Beautiful, tempting baked goods range in price from $3-3.75, and you can choose from chocolate or carrot cakes, lemon bars, tiramisu, cheesecake and more. Quiche is available for $3.95 per slice, and an espresso sundae costs the same amount.
Breakfast bagels are available any time for $3 or less, and there is a wide variety of sandwiches to choose from beyond what's offered on the $5 menu; there are even kid-friendly grilled cheese and PB&J sandwiches for $3.50. Many coffee and tea drinks are available, as well as milkshakes; all of these cost less than $5, and many are even under $3.
So whether you come in for breakfast, for your caffeine fix, for a light lunch, for "coffice"-ing, to hang out with friends, or to satisfy your sweet tooth, My Favorite Cafe — which is bright, welcoming, and friendly — will definitely become one of your favorite places!
