Latte Quatto Sette Italian CafeThe Best Cappuccino in Town
On my never-ending search to find great coffee in this town, Latte Quattro Sette is definitely one of our top picks. This week we stopped by to have some incredible Illy coffee from Italy--one of the only places to serve Illy in town--and to indulge in freshly baked bread and pastries. Latte Quattro Sette is part of the Oliva group restaurants a locally owned Italian restaurant group that has three locations in town. It holds a reputation throughout the city as one of THE places to go for great authentic Italian and a nice evening out. At Oliva Enoteca Restaurant they have an incredible bakery and all of Latte Quattro Sette’s baked good come straight from Oliva’s oven every morning. The croissants and biscottis, which I use to dip into my cappuccino, are sinfully delicious, my Achilles heel.
