What’s the best place to go in Tyler for a light brunch and a specialty coffee or tea? Caffe Tazza, obviously. Located in the Harley’s shopping center next door to Garden Style (best florist in town, by the way), Caffe Tazza offers a selection of breakfast pastries, muffins, sandwiches, salads, and gelato along with gourmet coffees and teas, and a small selection of wines.
Caffe Tazza specializes in what my husband may call ‘chick food’, but that’s probably why I love it so much. One of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday lunch is at one of their patio tables with my sister and a stack of magazines. We love to split the veggie sandwich on Ciabatta bread with a side of fruit and either a Chai Granita or a glass of Prosecco, and some days I like to indulge with a scoop of Spumoni gelato to finish things off.
Caffe Tazza is a great spot for unwinding with girlfriends or taking a break from a day of shopping. If your husbands or boyfriends are brave enough to come with you, they do have some delicious and hearty looking Belgian waffles and omelets, and a yummy turkey bacon avocado croissant that I would consider to be guy-approved foods. Coffee lovers must try Caffe Tazza’s signature drink, the cappuccino, with perfectly proportioned espresso, thick and creamy steamed milk and foam. Or, try a pumpkin latte if you are in a seasonal mood. Caffe Tazza is definitely a must-try for all my lady Tylerites.
