Abru Caffé a Nifty Italian Coffee Shop in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea
This Italian coffee shop along Commercial Boulevard serves freshly made panini, tramezzini (tea sandwiches), and salads in addition to a host of daily-baked cookies and confections. The modern space, with white and orange walls and blue tiled countertop, is run by brother-and-sister team Anna and Leo DeVincentis and Anna's husband, Stefano. It's bright and clean and perfect for reading a paper and sipping a Segafredo espresso or any one of the flavored coffee drinks, from pumpkin spice to peppermint. A signature panino is layered with fresh ingredients such as mozzarella, tomato, basil, and prosciutto and is grilled to order; salads are chock-full of grilled chicken, olives, fresh fruit, and nuts. Better yet are the chocolate, apricot, and cream-filled cookies, the flaky croissants, cannoli, and Anna's own tiramisu.
