CAFFÈ VERGNANO 1882, renowned for offering traditional Italian coffee, has just been launched at The ONE, a sophisticated new shopping mall on Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. The new 2,270 square foot coffee shop, with seating for 40, was inspired by the coffee bars of Italy with oak and mahogany paneling and comfortable sofas.
Traditional Italian Delights
Traditional Italian coffee tend to be very sweet, which may not suit everyone’s tastebud. At CAFFÈ VERGNANO 1882, coffee cups are stored between 55° and 60°C, so that the cappuccino remains at the ideal temperature for a full flavored experience. Some of their signature drinks are:
- Cappuccino Baileys (Regular HK$39, Large HK$42), a blend of fresh milk, Baileys, and premium VERGNANO espresso, with a touch of milk foam;
- White Cioccolino ($42), a sweet and dedicated iced coffee shake with white chocolate and skimmed milk; and
- Cremino ($42) a refreshing coffee drink of iced coffee shake with vanilla and chocolate ice cream, all of which presents a unique flavor of coffee.
Besides coffee, Kewal Krishan, the Executive Chef at CAFFÈ VERGNANO 1882, has prepared a new menu of traditional Italian cuisine. Bread and pizza are baked fresh every day, so the sandwiches are supposed to be good. Some signature delights are:
- Portobello mushroom with feta cheese, tomato salad (HK$54);
- Pan-fried Hokkaido scallops with new potatoes and red wine vinegar salad (HK$82);
- Smoked salmon, mixed leaves and capers in sour cream sandwich with homemade saffron bread (HK$58);
