Simplicity, freshness, and flavor. 1909 Caf? builds its massive menu of creative cuisine on these three tenets. Working almost entirely from house-made recipes, the culinary team crafts a bulk of the menu from scratch, ranging from fresh-baked baguettes to mustards and spreads. Chockfull of proteins, 1909?s sandwiches run the gamut from smoked turkey with apricot mayo to smoked marlin with house-made vinaigrette. For vegetarians, cooks infuse portobella mushrooms with garlic-parsley sauce and pack four cheeses into their grilled cheese, including mozzarella and brie. Aside from sandwiches, the 1909 crew tosses salads, whips up lattes and smoothies, and even serves sweets from Misha?s Cupcakes.

Diners can slide into tables facing a row of open, arched windows overlooking the country club's manicured landscape of green grass, swaying palm trees, and fist-shaking groundskeepers.

Despite being separated from the Mediterranean by an entire ocean, 345 Caffe Italiano manages to bring an authentic taste of Italy to southern Florida. Its chefs embrace tradition by importing specialty meats and cheeses directly from the Old World, and pair these distinctive flavors with locally sourced produce to better capture the inherent freshness of true Italian bistro cooking. This is most evident in the eatery's panini sandwiches, which can feature everything from bresaola della valtellina (cured beef) and Italian goat cheese to grilled eggplant and basil between two pieces of gently crisped bread. As a sweet counterpoint to the savory panini, the cafe also offers a variety of sweet and savory crepes, classic espresso drinks, and gelato that is made fresh daily using shavings from Italy's famous icebergs.
