“Gourmet” is a relative term. But you can feel safe calling Marrone Rosso a gourmet coffee house. Marrone Rosso means “brown-red” in Latin and those are considered to be among the finest beans. Marrone Rosso also makes its salads and sandwiches to order so they are fresh and bakes its pastries on site.
The coffee shop is part of the international Aroma Espresso Bar chain. But don’t let the chain affiliation scar you away. It’s an interesting place to hang out and have a pastry.
