I know, this isn’t really pushing the limits, but since there were about four months between my previous posts, I’m feeling kind of productive. Additionally, I know pictures are always nice, and I rarely think about it, but to entice you to break any new year resolutions about calories, check out the pastries we offer everyday from Enrico’s Biscotti and Colangelo’s Bakery. The photo doesn’t do justice, but it’s still a photo and a tease.
Coffeewise, we are still pumping out some of the best product in downtown. We still get our coffee from La Prima and feel we are doing their product right. I don’t want to take anything away from 21st Coffee & Tea (located in the Frick Building), cause I got nothing but repect for their expertise, but as another kiosk located in the heart of the business district, it’d sure be nice to see a few more regulars from outside our walls. Anyone reading this that knows about us, maybe make a new years resolution to bring along a friend to enjoy a really good cappuccino in a ceramic cup; sit and enjoy your drink rather than take it on the run. We still have one of the fastest , free wi-fi connections in downtown, so make it a productive break and stay a while.
One experiment we’ve started due to the cold is ordering-in: if you place a food order before 10:30, we’ll have pasta, soup, sandwiches or pizza waiting for you at the shop. Everyday we make a pick-up of fresh prepared food at Colangelo’s bakery. Your choices are a daily pasta special; pasta with tomato and basil; Nico, a penne pasta dish with spinach, pine nuts, roasted red pepper, garlic, and spices, either plain or with a choice of chicken or spicy sausage; a choice of wedding soup or pasta e fagioli; or order your own 10″ pizza. Stop by for more info or to pick up a menu. We’re always encouraging customers to visit Colangelo’s for a true taste of Italy, but our limited menu isn’t a bad option.
