About this Business
From Our Editors
Lavazza has been brewing rich, flavorful Italian espresso for 110 years, but guests didn’t have a place to sit down and enjoy it until Lavazza Espression cafés began popping up in 2007. At locations throughout the world, guests savor the renowned brew alongside a menu of freshly baked pastries, breakfast bites, and light café fare. Diners sip glasses of cream-topped café mochas and spoon bites gelato, or do both with chef Ferran Adria's signature edible Espesso—not espresso: think coffee with a solid, foamy consistency. Margherita pizzas, mushroom paninis, and goat cheese salads make for elegant light lunches, and bites of scones and Italian-style quiche greet the morning gourmet-style.
The modern refinement extends to the décor, as diners slip into retro-futuristic red and white chairs and pull up to glossy mod tables. Visually arresting photographs from Lavazza calendars cover the walls, along with shelves stocked with portable Modo Mio espresso machines and fair-trade coffee.
