Someone told us about Vita Cucina so we thought we would give it a try. Our area is not known for its outstanding cuisine so we did not go in with great expectations. We popped in for breakfast a couple of days ago and were pleasantly surprised. (althought they told us we needed to come back and try the lunch too). I tried the breakfast sandwich and my husband had a turkey sandwich. These sandwiches were made on perhaps some of the best focaccia bread I have ever eaten. It was so fresh and light. The turkey sandwich, according to my husband, was excellent and he is very fussy about his sandwich meats. It had pesto and some sort of Italian aioli tomato sauce on it. My breakfast sandwich was also very good. The home cured bacon was definitely a treat.
We also had to try a goodie so we opted to buy a piece of their Blueberry/Lemon sour cream coffee cake. Yuuummmmy! Very good. We look forward to going back and trying other things - especially the pizza.
The price was reasonable and you could tell it was a family affair. We met one of the owners and her mother and her son....Very friendly place. You can tell they love what they do. We made note that a lot of customers came in to buy things during the 45 minutes or so that we were there. Definitely a place to eat in Crescent City.
