The classics you love are still being served with pride, but there are new items to tempt your morning palate!
Believing that too much of a good thing is just the right approach to take when creating the ideal breakfast menu, Cafe´ Americano owner Ambrish Piare has added several new items to his hugely popular breakfast menu at Sarasota’s favorite downtown cosmopolitan cafe. The frittatas (one of the most popular items) now number five and include a Meat Lovers Frittata that’s composed of sausage, prosciutto, mushrooms, roasted red peppers and provolone cheese. All frittatas are served with toast or English muffin and homefries or sliced tomatoes. They range in price from $7.95-$10.95. Enjoy the newest egg specialty of the house, Eggs Benedict Gulf Coast which adds smoked salmon, lump crabmeat and avocado hollandaise to the traditional two poached eggs served on English muffins. It’s served with Cafe´ Americano signature homefries or sliced tomatoes. This is a unique Sarasota breakfast experience. There are four pancake varieties, three kinds of Belgian waffles (one with Nutella and bananas), French toast and five different omelets as well as a special omelet of the day. Seafood and meat breakfast egg sandwiches are sure to be popular as well as the new lox, cream cheese, onion, tomato and caper sandwich that is topped with an egg and served on a fresh bagel. It’s a big breakfast because all the egg sandwiches are served with homefries or sliced tomatoes.
