Cafe Ferlucci manages to encapsulate a simpler time with its VHS-lined shelves, wooden school chairs and old school tunes. Add warm, twinkle lighting and a newly built covered terrace and I’m in.
One half of the cousin-duo owners, Gianni took the name from his father’s jean empire from the ’80s. The idea was born from the tradition of grabbing morning espressos at local bars with his father.
Today, Ferlucci lives on in the form of a timeless cafe with Sophia Loren framed on the walls and that same beauty reflected in their iconic orange cups. Cappuccinos are mild roasts made with Miscela d’Oro beans offering nutty flavors, wood tones and underlying citrus.
For a quick bite, cold cuts and provolone on ciabatta are on hand or a simple grilled cheese croissant. While the truest pairing with your cup is the unassuming jar of cookies on the counter. Don’t miss these Nonna-style, Nutella cookies that just melt in your mouth. Oh, the nostalgia.
