Piccolo Cafe’s Porchetta Panino is the Real Deal

There are some foods that I just find irresistible. Porchetta is a perfect example. Fatty, well-seasoned, roast pork with the skin on? How can anyone but the strictest vegetarian turn that down? I sure can’t, which is why on a recent trip to Piccolo Cafe (Madison Ave. btw 37th+38th), I was sold on their Porchetta Panino as soon as I saw it on the menu.

Piccolo Cafe Serves Breakfast All Day

Chris H. didn’t love his first lunch at Piccolo Cafe, the Gramercy lunch spot that now has two locations in Midtown (one on 40th btw. 7+8th and one on Madison btw. 37+38th).  But here’s something we didn’t notice… they serve their breakfast sandwiches all day long, and they come with a free coffee.  Most of them are actually more expensive than the lunchtime panini ($8-10) but Serious Eats New York has a handy guide to help you decide which of the breakfast sandos is right for you.

Half off Piccolo Cafe: Been meaning to try the new Piccolo Cafe (on 40th btw. 7+8th) but didn't want to shell out the dough? This should help. Get $14 worth of food from either Piccolo location for just $7 from Groupon.

Stick to the Coffee at Piccolo Cafe For Now

Piccolo Cafe

I’ve tracked the opening of Piccolo Café (40th st between 7th & 8th) with a good deal of excitement. Their original location in Gramercy seems to have a loyal following, and even counts CNN reporter, Soledad O’Brien as a fan. At first impression, it’s a picturesque and civilized café on a street that’s lined with fashion district dives, generic delis, and glutted with traffic. Inside, it’s pretty and warm, and a place where I would be perfectly happy to linger for far too long over a steamy cup of Joe.

Piccolo Cafe is Now Open

When we reported last month that Grammercy’s Piccolo Cafe would be opening a second location in Midtown (on 40th btw. 7+8th) we wondered aloud how excited we should be.  Answer according to Soledad O’Brien? Very excited.  According to Grub Street the new location is now open, and the CNN anchor is a big fan. They’ve also posted a menu. Early adopters, let us know how it is in the comments.

Grammercy’s Piccolo Cafe Coming to Midtown

Thanks to Lunch’er “Cardamond” for pointing this one out via Twitter… Piccolo Cafe, the Italian panini and espresso shop in Grammercy, is opening a second location on 40th Street btw. 7+8th (right across from the New York Times Building). Part of us thinks it sounds like another generic deli, but if they really do serve “the best Prosciutto, Mozzarella, Burrata, Gnocchi, as well as delicious panini and desserts”, as touted by their Facebook page, it could be good. Anybody been to the original? How excited should we get about this?
