You know those times when you’re going out with friends and can’t decide between coffee or cocktails? Treno Coffee & Prosecco has got you covered.
One of the five new Italian-inspired restaurant concepts located at the base of The Oliver apartments, Treno is a café by day, prosecco bar by night.
The space at Treno is optimal for both a daytime caffeine pick-me-up or a nighttime celebratory glass of bubbly. Bright windows and light pastel colours evoke a warm, inviting feel, while green marble and gold accents introduce a sense of elegance to the room. And a huge mural of an exploding bottle of prosecco, situated behind the barista counter, ties the night-and-day concept together beautifully.
In the morning, you can stop by Treno for a cappuccino and a light breakfast or snack. Pastries and other offerings are made fresh in-house every day. Enjoy cannoli, cakes or one of six croissan’wich options such as the Roman, which features porchetta, candied eggplant, arugula and aioli, or the Nordic, stuffed with smoked salmon, avocado spread, crème fraîche and cucumber.
Hot drinks at Treno follow the typical Italian café formula: espresso-based beverages comprise most of the menu, with a few extra options thrown in, including sparkling frappes, iced coffees and tea-based lattes.
In the evening, the second half of Treno’s concept comes to the forefront — and it’s all about the bubbles. The restaurant serves Giusti Prosecco Veneto from Italy at $12 a glass or mixed into a few different cocktails, including a bellini or Aperol fizz. Or, if you absolutely can’t decide between a coffee or cocktail, you can opt for the best of both worlds with one of Treno’s coffee-based cocktails, such as the espresso old fashioned made with bourbon, crème de cacao, bitters, demerara sugar and espresso.
Stop by the new café any time of day, and be sure to check out the other recently opened dining concepts while you’re there.
