Last week we drove up to Chicago. It was just 6:30 a.m. and we were eager to get some breakfast. Across the Millenium Park, Caffe Baci was the only place that was open at that hour. We walked in and the welcoming smell of coffee wafted from the kitchen. They had all sorts of wonderful goodies (muffins, cookies, cinnamon rolls, pizzettes, gelato and a variety of pastries) in the display counters by the entrance. They also had all types of Italian and local fruit juices and bottled beverages to choose from.
We were too early for the Gourmet salads, Italian and Grilled Panini, Baci Wraps and Specialty Soups. So, we settled for made to order freshly cooked breakfast from the Colazione (Breakfast) Menu. We had Veggie Fusion and Belgian Waffles for about $5 each and Strawberry Smoothie for less than $4. The Veggie Fusion was an egg white omelet with sauted, low cal cheese, spinach, tomatoes and mushrooms and was served with whole wheat toast and fresh fruit salad. The Belgian Waffles was warm and crispy, served with maple syrup, whipped cream and fresh strawberries...it was delicious! I can't wait to try their soups and paninis next time!
