Fiat Cafe

Fiat Cafe

Baller on a budget at “Fiat Cafe”

This mini Italian cafe is my favorite neighborhood place. I come here at least once a week or order delivery. It’s one of those great everyday neighborhood spots for breakfast or dinner. Fiat Cafe is small and cute, super cozy, and super reasonable. Seriously, for what you get, the prices are wayyy below anything else in my neighborhood. Which cute place in prime downtown has an $18 bottle of wine ??? Not to mention their great food cost you will only cost you $10! Fiat is owned by two French brothers who also own another French bistro in Soho. I highly recommend the brunch (Salmon Benedicts and Vegetable Paninis-I’m far from being a Vegetarian but this panini is so good!! I pretty much tried all the paninis on the menu (but this is the best one) and dinner is just as great to come here. They always have daily special menus with different entrees too. I recommend you come here with friends for casual dinner any night of the week and also lunch and weekend brunch.
