Caffé De Luca
Located in Bucktown, Caffé De Luca offers authentic Italian fare in a setting that resembles a Tuscan alleyway thanks to its high ceilings, rust-colored walls, and overhead clotheslines hung with vintage dresses. The café's front sidewalk seating and back patio are also popular during warmer months. An all-day coffee bar and a breakfast menu served from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. enable patrons to stop by anytime for oversize mugs of Italian coffee paired with homemade pastries, omelettes, or French toast with mascarpone and berries. A lunch menu of salads, panini, and pizza is also available.
