Cafe Cito

I am a fan of breakfast and places that serve it well after 1pm. These guys do not have a liquor license, but are BYOB. I am not sure what that means for mimosas. Hmm, note to self… Cafe CitoThey do serve Portland’s Sumpton Coffee – several different beans – Indonesia, Rwande Huye Mountain and their own house blend.  We had a super sweet and attentive server named Aurora – I couldn’t have asked for a better Sunday afternoon experience. My favorite is that we have a chance to be a little retro and use a chemex. My coffee was super smooth and mild – needing very little milk or sugar, plus I was able to drink it sitting in the sunshine on a beautiful sunshiny day.

I actually ordered the first thing I saw on the menu, a hand crafted egg sammy on ciabatta.  A fried egg with smoked duck sausage – a perfect combination of savory with just a little sweet.  Duck Sausage and Egg Breakfast Sammy  My egg was a stellar over medium; the yolk flowed adding great taste and smooth texture to the sandwich.   They have a multigrain, but I wanted to spluge on this gorgeous crusty, yet soft ciabatta roll.  It was buttered just a little.  I loved it.  It is a ginormous sammy on a super tiny small plate.

My mom went with the summer frittata after asking for some help from Aurora.  A great sized portion of egg mixed with roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, baby spinach, basil, and goat cheese, served along a large baby greens salad.

As if that wasn’t enough food, I couldn’t resist the organic vanilla yogurt with house made fruit and granola.  I think this pick says it all.  Yogurt with Fruit and Granola
