Outdoor Dining

 

As summer quickly approaches, it is perfect weather to dine as the Italians say, al fresco, or in the open air. We are lucky to have so many choices for great food in the Cape area! Here is a rundown of popular local spots:

Baristas Coffee Bar, located in the lobby of the Marquette Tower, has outdoor seating that is fantastic for a quick bite on your lunch hour, or a lazy Sunday of people watching over handcrafted coffee or Bloody Marys.

Bella Italia has outdoor cafe seating under a covered roof. It is open for lunch and dinner all week making it an excellent place to cozy up on a date, or to sip a drink and people watch.  Dinner favorites include the Pollo Di Gouda with a homemade smoked Gouda cream sauce, and the Chicken Saltimbocca served over a mushroom marsala risotto.  The lunch menu includes classic sandwiches and paninis - you can never go wrong with the Italian Meatball Sandwich! View the menu here:  http://www.iluvlocalplaces.com/restaurants/bella-italia-ristorante

Cup n Cork has a beautiful courtyard affectionately called the "Coffee Grounds."  It is a perfect place to enjoy a beverage while taking in the sounds of a local musician, or a Saturday night movie.
