The garden like ambiance calls you inside. The fragrance of good, fresh coffee greeted my nose. Once seated in the cushy, maroon, velvet seat, I felt like royalty. The server, Jennifer had an endearing smile; like that of one's dear Aunt or my own Nana. She was kind, professional, and helpful. The owner, Al was happy and welcoming. My daughter wanted spinach and cheese in her eggs. I wanted plain, yet fluffy eggs. Our guest just wanted waffles and meat. We were very hungry and very selective. The fact that none of us eat pork often makes breakfast difficult; we were delighted to know that no pork is ever served or cooked here! The owner treated us to his cafe- made turkey sausages which were plentiful and spiced with a flavor from GOD! Dramatic? Maybe a little...although, it was beyond EXCELLENT! And...it's difficult to find good turkey breakfast items in Chicago. The food was definitely better than regular coffee "CAFES"...indeed, it was heaven on a plate! My daughter's Chai Latte was foamy, tasty, and light. Jennifer gave me a small carafe of coffee, which I almost swallowed whole! Delicious! I was so taken by it all...in the most amazing way. I felt like a Queen for a about 45 minutes...and then, sadly, we had to continue our day. Cafe Zafferano is my new "GO-TO" place. It was a beautiful experience. The space is wonderful to host a private event, bring my entire family, or just keep as my private zen place. With easy parking, great, clean food, and delightful service, Cafe "Z" was a big hit with me and the family! YOU MUST VISIT SOON!
