L’Americano is a glamorous cafe space nestled in the corner of Fortitude Valley furniture boutique Coco Republic. The venue has taken aesthetic inspiration from The Talented Mr. Ripley, chiefly the character Marge Sherwood. Decorative touches include marble details, white banquet seating, miniature decorative riverboats, olive trees and a sophisticated Italian Riviera theme, which complements the Italian-inspired menu perfectly. L’Americano services the busy commuter crowd with express cabinet options and takeaway Vittoria coffee, while those exploring the showroom can mull over their potential purchase with sit-down fare. The menu offers light bites including prosciutto and avocado toast, as well as an egg-centric dish selection that pairs soft-boiled eggs with the likes of avocado and faro mash, smoked ocean trout, and roasted eggplant. Lunch showcases a selection of crostini, antipasti, salads, tramezzini sandwiches and sweets, while the bar moves to serve up Italian beer, cocktails, French rosé and champagne.
