Dupont Circle’s La Tomate has launched a new concept in its existing space on Connecticut Avenue. Family owned and operated since 1987, La Tomate inaugurates La Tomate Caffè adjacent to its current bistro - the first of many changes the restaurant will implement between 2014-2015.

Designed by Milan-based architect, Fillipo Taidelli, the Caffè offers Belle Epoque inspired atmosphere with Italian-flared menu items. Open from breakfast to late-night, the Caffè will serve brioche and sweets, espresso, coffee and fresh-squeezed juices for breakfast, artisanal-cut domestic and Italian charcuterie, assortments of cheeses, mozzarella varieties and light-fare. A vast array of packaged homemade gastro products, including fresh, signature sauces and soups as well as Italian delicatessen treats, cocktails, wine and beer will be available all day.
