Cafe Pettirosso

How I heard of this place: While on a temporary assignment at Lifelong, a colleague asked me to join her at Pettirosso for coffee. I was hooked.

Type of cuisine: From morning to late-night, enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour at any time of day.

Ambiance: A neighborhood coffee shop-restaurant-bar, Pettirosso has created the setting for any of the above. An unassuming small entry just off of East Pike Street, with tables and chairs out front for a casual patio experience, one enters the somewhat expected walk-up coffee bar and display case of pastries, a full bar just behind.

Continue farther inside and notice your eyes widen with the immensity of cozy, rustic yet industrial furnishings throughout the dining area.

A feast for the eyes and the tastebuds at Pettirosso.

What I ordered: On my way to meet a friend for lunch, I did my research. Having learned that Pettirosso is owned by the same gals who started the Bang Bang Cafe near our old stomping grounds, and hearing the rage about Shawn’s Vegan Mac ‘n Cheese, it was a must on this visit.

My dining companion and I each ordered a coffee, a Caramel Latte for me, and awaited our entrees.

To share, in addition to the Vegan Mac ‘n Cheese, we opted for the Duck Egg Hash which was served with roasted fingerling potatoes and orange-zest-infused wilted kale, a side of buttered toast.

We also enjoyed the Herbed Tomato Burrata Poached Eggs on Brioche.

What I loved: The smooth, lightly caramel-ed espresso beverage, the red fingerling potato hash, tangy tomato and fresh burrata combination, and the novelty of duck eggs.

Why I loved it: Fresh, creative, small-portioned plates, friendly service, a decorative treat for the eyes and casual calmness within which to dine.

All of this and more lends itself to the perfect date-night spot, catch-up brunch with a good friend, or office/department meeting.
