When I’m on the go and I don’t really feel like getting a slice of pizza, or a sandwich, I go to Vero. Not far from the Lepanto/Ottaviano metro stops, Vero is a take-away place (with some seating), offering sandwiches, sushi, salads, yogurts, and rice and noodle dishes.
My favorite things to get at Vero are the yogurt with granola and marmalade, and the large coffees. Yes, you read correctly- large, American-style coffees! The large consumer base from St. John’s University, situated right across the street, is probably why Vero gives off such an American cafè feel. Not to mention they have a large array of muffins, cakes, brownies, and sometimes, bagels! They also offer a variety of health juices and smoothies.
All of their meals are prepared that very morning, with ingredients based on seasonal offerings. The people who work at Vero are always very friendly, and speak English very well. One time they even prepared a yogurt with marmalade for me on the spot, since I arrived before they were all prepared and put out.
If you’re in the area and feel like a fresh bite to eat, it’s definitely the right spot for you!
