With plenty of seating, free wifi, and fabulous fresh healthy food,
Palio Cafè is the ideal place for a breakfast or lunch meeting with friends or colleagues.

Relax with a good book, play on your phone,  get away from the office and get some work done.  NO eating at your desk, or waiting in a long line, unwind at lunch. As they say in Italian, “Riposare”. We recommend you place your breakfast orders before 3 pm the previous work day, and your lunch orders before 5 pm.

We accept all major credit cards. Gift Cards Available.

 

We specialize in catering your office meetings.  Trays of food for early morning continental breakfast or luncheon meetings from the board room to the training seminar are attractively packaged so they can be placed directly on the table. We also offer festive box lunches for the working lunch or the meeting on-the-run. Traditional Northern Italian hot pasta entrees are delivered right from our oven to your conference room. At Palio Cafè we are dedicated to the preparation of tasty food using natural, fresh and often organic ingredients, and for the most part healthy and low-fat.

The Italian word for sandwich is panino, which derives from pane (bread). The importance of bread in the preparation of a panino is paramount to its taste. But what really makes the difference in our panini is that most of our panini ingredients are made fresh from scratch in our own kitchen every morning. Our panini are offered whole or half.

Palio Cafè is named for the bareback horse race “Il Palio” held annually since the thirteenth century to celebrate the harvest in Sienna, Italy.
