EAT LIKE FAMILY
Breakfast or lunch at Luisa’s feels a lot like sitting in an Italian family kitchen. Warm and bright, savory smells coming from the cooktop, friends and family gathered around conversation and the anticipation of a delicious, comforting meal. Good food is the ultimate expression of caring for most Italians, and owner Vivian May is no exception. Although the café menu isn’t exclusively influenced by her Italian heritage, her commitment to using simple, nutritious, best-quality ingredients from producers she trusts is. Vivian’s ‘family’ of customers will tell you her time-tested recipes and attention to detail make all the difference.
Local Tip: Prime time on weekends can be busy, but don’t let that discourage you. Adjoining Harbert Swedish Bakery is a comfortable place to wait and enjoy a classic pastry treat. Or run next door for a look through Alchemy Antiques. Art curious? Consider a stop at nearby Judith Racht Gallery after your meal.
