Amid the deluge of recession specials, we just got word of one that takes the trend to another level: Casa Havana is offering a Recession Breakfast that includes two eggs, ham or bacon, french fries, toast and coffee for 20 cents. That’s an entire meal you could pay for by digging up change from under the couch cushions.
We can’t say how delicious it is (although we do like their octopus salad), but for 20 cents we’re not asking the hard questions. The special is available from 7am to 11am.
