Biscottis Espresso Cafe Restaurant Review

: What started as a trendy coffeehouse blossomed into a foodie hot-spot with late-night dinners and topnotch desserts, so much so that owners Karin Tucker and Barbara Bredehoeft had to knock down walls to make room for their following (going from 37 seats to 100). Twists on traditional salads, pastas, pizzas and sandwiches (think sweet potato red pepper soup and Thai chicken salad marinated in coconut with fresh mango salsa and a creamy sesame dressing) and daily chalkboard specials complement the twenty different types of coffee beans and thirty unique wines available by the glass. We suggest, however, starting with dessert. Obviously, fresh biscotti are a given, but no fewer than twenty homemade delicacies are on display in the cold case on any given day. There's nothing better than croissant bread pudding served warm with vanilla ice cream or coffee-chocolate café au lait cake to get you over your work-week funk.
