Quote: A cafe located in the small town of Greve in Chianti, Italy.
Restaurant | "Cafe Le Logge"
The small and quaint town of Greve in Chianti is about one hour south of Florence in the beautiful Italian region of Tuscany. It is a must visit for any traveler in this area. Caffe Le Logge is a small but familiar eatery located in the town’s main plaza, piazza G. Matteotti at number 32. The family home feel of the café is what might make you step in, but it is the service and especially the food that will make you stay and come back for more. This establishment is capable of satisfying the most economically concerned customer, as well as the most cultured food aficionado. It is open in the summer as a small café for breakfast, at 12 noon to 4pm for lunch, and from 7 to 9pm for dinner, which is only by booking for a minimum of ten people. During winter they are only open for lunch from 12 noon to 4pm.
For breakfast, the drink of choice is of course a cappuccino, along with a jelly-filled croissant, as the servers who are also the cooks will joyously make you a cup. For lunch and dinner, the choices include all of the classic Italian dishes sprinkled with several classic Tuscan dishes, such as the famous cabbage and bread soup and strips of beef in Chianti wine. Their pasta is made exclusively with durum wheat and made by the town’s local pasta maker. There are also cheese platters that will most likely involve cheeses that even a well-traveled customer might not have tasted before. When it comes to wine, the café is the best choice in the town, with their personal cellar along with wine tasting tours. The bar is well stocked with every wine option for lunch and dinner meals. If you would like to ask, it is possible to get a recommendation and reservation for important wineries that are located throughout Italy. So if you happen to be traveling through Greve in Chianti, the Caffe Le Logge is a must visit for any meal.
