Popped into Tutto Caffè one recent morning for liquid and solid fuel.
Tutto Caffè is an unassuming little coffeeshop in downtown Baldwin Park. It’s set up as a sort of gathering space to sit and sip, read or work, perhaps at the stone-topped counter in the center of the room.
I was taking a day off from work and was wandering the neighborhood with my dog. I tied Toby to one of the outside tables and went inside to order, all the while keeping an eye on Tobe, who’s still very much a puppy and not used to being tied up outside of strange places.
The young woman behind the counter noticed my anxious looks outside and said, “You’re welcome to bring your dog inside.” I loved the place immediately.
I ordered a cup of hot coffee, a rich roast with smooth notes, and a breakfast frittata, a muffin-like device with eggs, ham and cheese backed into an easily handled meal.
I also tried a gooey wedge of chocolate topped with caramel squizzles and some pecans. Dense and delicious.
At lunch time you have sandwich, salad and flatbread options. And gelato at all times. It’s a pleasant little place, and even better, dog friendly.
Tutto Caffè is at 4833 New Broad St., Orlando. It’s open for breakfast and lunch daily, closing at 6 p.m. (Although the cafe has been open since February, its website still states that a grand opening is coming soon, and several of the photos there don’t seem to be associated with the space in Winter Park.) The phone number is 407-930-0152.
