For $4, today's side deal gets you $10 worth of baked goods, café fare and drinks at Caffe Rosso, located in Ramsay. Caffe Rosso's attention to detail is manifested in the freshly crafted pastries and handcrafted lattes traversing the expanse of its marble countertop each day. Baked goods emerge from the oven every morning, from muffins ($1.98) to scones ($2.25) to assorted cookies ($1.75), and the hungrier customer can savour a selection of paninis, wraps, and soups. The talented and conscientious baristas draw latte art on each cup of coffee, from the dainty depictions that grace the tops of espressos ($1.95 for a small, $2.75 for a large) to the ornate canvasses of the cappuccino ($4 for a small, $4.50 for a large), where the wider berth is used to recreate particularly exciting sessions of Parliament. Customers can also set their eyes on the more enduring handiwork of local artists abloom on the walls, or use the free WiFi to peruse their own online designs.
- The panini was sweet, tangy and spicy all at once, offering great balance and contrast. The whole sandwich was toasted nicely, and the cheese was melted perfectly. – Darell Hartlen, Fast Forward Weekly
