Until Sunday, the Seventh Ward breakfast and lunch spot Pagoda Cafe (1430 N. Dorgenois St.) will be celebrating back to school by honoring local teachers with free beverages. 

Coffees, teas and cold drinks (including a delicious mango lassi) are all free with the purchase of food, and the deal applies to any kind of school employee, from daycare to university. 

Dan Etheridge, who opened the bungalow-style cafe last year with partner Shawna Sassoon, says he's always struck by seeing the same teachers when he picks up his son at 5 p.m. who were there at 7:45 a.m., when he drops his son off.

It's hard work, and Etheridge says the cafe wants to recognize that with a free respite from the heat.
