Ciao For Now
Posted by jade on 04/17/2009
Ciao for Now is THE definition of your friendly neighborhood coffee shop - first of all, it has excellent coffee (to the point where I asked them who their supplier was) and a great variety of teas. Their food is also amazing - delicious pastries and sweets, and their savory food is well flavored and portioned. You can tell that they put a lot of thought into coming up with their recipes, and making sure that the finished product makes their customers happy. It's great for breakfast muffins, wraps, sandwiches (especially their tuna melt), and now even has a brunch menu. I have to admit I haven't tried it yet, but if it's anything like the rest of their food, I'm sure it is yummy. To top it all off, their staff is always friendly and greets everyone with a smile. I promise I'm not promoting them, I really just love Ciao for Now this much! If you're in the neighborhood, it's worth a visit.

This place is all about its homemade goods and the very cool folks that work behind the counter. I love the sandwiches and the "just right" portions. I've never left still hungry and I never left way too stuffed. Definitely a local gem.
