Delizioso Bakery and Kitchen has added its name to the growing roster of new Princeton eateries set to open despite the lingering pandemic.
The Italian cafe is soon to be open seven days a week at 205 Witherspoon Street — a recently renovated 1910 building known as “Witherspoon Corner” and featuring a mix of commercial space and apartment dwellings.
The Princeton location of the café is one of two for co-owners Ralph Guzzo, a baker with 30 years of experience, and Eric Weshner, a long-time police officer in New York; a location in Jersey City is also due to open later this year.
The cafe plans to offer breakfast from 7 to 10:30 a.m. daily with menu items including various egg-based dishes served with artisan bread ($9.95 to $12.95); veggie breakfast tacos served with home fries ($12.95); and pancakes or French toast, each available in plain, nutella, and cannoli flavors ($12.95 for three pieces).
Lunch, served from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., will give diners a choice of open-faced sandwiches ranging from a sweet blueberry and goat cheese combination to tuna or spinach and mozzarella ($10.95 each); as well as traditional turkey, pork, and chicken-based sandwiches ($14.95).
Also available daily will be freshly made chickpea, chopped, mixed-green, and arugula salads ($12.95) as well as pizzas, served by the slice ($5.95) or six-piece pie ($20). Options include a classic margarita pizza as well as sfincione, served with plum tomatoes, garlic, onions, finely chopped anchovy, breadcrumbs, oregano; and lemon zest, served with prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and arugula.
