The newly remodeled Café downstairs offers a large, complete menu of "la cucina povera" of Italy throughout the day and evening, with simple, real, savory foods inspired by regional farm and town kitchens, cafes, and bakeries. A wood-fired oven produces pizzas all day, including breakfast pizzas. At the beginning of the day, our pastry chef offers a selection of homemade Italian sweet and savory baked items. Our new cast iron Italian panini press also offers a couple of breakfast panini, but the full panini menu begins at 11:30 a.m. with delicious hot sandwiches of cheese, vegetables, meats, and condiments in various combinations. We offer a wide choice of our hand-made salumi; our antipasti/contorni list allows the customer to assemble his/her own combinations of rustic items. At dinnertime, the menu expands even more with a choice of many hot main course items. And desserts and baked goods are available throughout the day.
During the day and evening, we have a fine selection of wines, beers, and liquors, traditional cocktails, and digestivi and aperitifs, chosen especially to complement the food and atmosphere of the Cafe.
Espresso drinks are made on our "new" 1961 Faema E61 espresso machine-the gold standard in espresso machines for quality (and beauty).
