Breakfast Beckons at Il Bellagio in West Palm Beach
Early-morning visitors at CityPlace see a far different piazza than their night-owl counterparts: The crowds are gone, the dancing fountain is quiet, and nearly every seat around the center plaza beckons you to wile away the morning sipping coffee. And for the next few days - through July 31 - you can get a free LaVazza coffee with any breakfast purchase at Il Bellagio, the stately Italian eatery that sits fountain-side within the Harriet Himmel Theater.
The coffee giveaway celebrates the early-morning opening of Il Bellagio and its new breakfast menu.
The place is offering traditional items, including waffles and eggs, along with Italian-inspired dishes: ricotta pancakes with orange zest and walnuts, omelets with salami and provolone, and crepes with fruit and Nutella or mascarpone cream. We think "Nana's Breakfast" - grilled Italian toast with an egg cooked in the center and served with roasted peppers and potatoes - is sure to be a favorite.
Breakfast runs daily from 7:30 to 11 a.m. And if you can't make it there early enough, there's always lunch and dinner, which runs through 11 p.m.
