Eataly Dallas, home of wheat and gluten, opens a coffee shop. Called Lavazza coffeeIn partnership with Lavazza, an Italian coffee company, it will be an all-day dining café and bar in the Italian style.
The café serves breakfast, lunch and “merenda” to eat or take away. Merenda is an afternoon snack. So if you want a real meal for dinner, you will likely be nudged to one of the other on-site restaurants.
One publication suggests that the centerpiece of Caffè Lavazza will be La Torre (The Tower), with 12 different pastries, biscotti and savory items ranging from:
Neapolitan rum cake
salatini – puff pastry filled with spinach and ricotta
The Caffè Lavazza complements Eataly’s three other restaurant offerings: Terra, La Pizza & La Pasta and Il Pastaio.
The cafe will be the Eatalys entrance to the NorthPark Center on the first floor and will open on May 6th. It marks the completed construction of Eataly’s 46,000-square-foot Italian grocery store, which opened in December with pizza, pasta, bread, panettone, panettone and biscuits, biscuits, toast and all kinds of wheat-like things. They really should be called Wheataly.
