Café Arnone opened in November in a renovated former bank building. The Italian-themed café got its start as a popular food truck and offers coffee drinks, light foods, pastries and gelato.
Ricotta toast makes a refreshing start to the morning: thick-cut sourdough spread generously with ricotta cheese, paved with bananas and strawberries and drizzled with honey. The bombolini, doughnut-like Italian pastries filled with chocolate or custard, did not last long enough to be photographed.
Lunchtime offerings include piadinas, Italian flatbreads filled with Mediterranean delicacies like prosciutto with arugula and hummus with tabbouleh. Gelato is served on its own, in drinks and (oh my) sandwiched between two bombolini.
