Grab a book and head on over to the Capriccio Cafe located roughly five minutes away from another brunch favorite, Crackings, on Harbor Blvd in Destin! This sweet little Italian cafe offers you the authenticity of Italian bites and coffee — served with a smile. The owner, Marco, moved to the United States in 1992 and has been bringing his flavor and passion for food ever since.

You won’t have to worry about feeling welcome here. Capriccio Cafe staff is known to be extremely friendly, with the owner and manager always smiling and conversing with their customers. Of course, it is not surprising, because part of the Italian charm focuses on closeness and treating your neighbors like family.

Something that is truly exquisite here is that Capriccio Cafe actually imports all of their meats, coffee, and cheeses straight from Italy. Nothing but the best for their customers. Grab a bold Italian coffee and sit on the patio as you soak up the Florida sun.

Don’t forget that this cafe has some incredible eats to keep you company.

Try out these cafe favorites:

Fluffer Nuffer
This tasty “sweet crepe” is perfect for all those marshmallow lovers out there. This crepe includes some delectable peanut butter and…you guessed it…marshmallow fluff! How could you say no when it just sounds so good?

The Roman
As much as we love our sweet treats, The Roman is a stuffed crape that offers that little bit of saltiness perfect to match with your morning coffee. This stuffed crepe used grilled chicken as the main meat, add in a little romaine, some tomatoes, some onions, a dash of cheese, and top it off with Caesar dressing.

Grilled Tuna Sandwich
It’s a cafe and if you are looking for something a little more filling, there are plenty of sandwiches to choose from. There’s Cotto and Cheese, there’s Prosciutto di Parma, but we have our eye on the Grilled Tuna. Served on a hoagie bun, this sandwich included grilled tuna, Roma tomatoes, onions, and a house tartar sauce.

Drink options include an Espresso macchiato (double with a dollop of milk foam), Nutella doppio (double with Nutella), frappes (caramel, mocha, vanilla), teas, and more.

So, stay a little while. Stay all day if you want! Capriccio Cafe welcomes its customers to sit back and enjoy the many different flavors of Italy as long as you remember to keep coming back.
