Coromandel is one of my favorite places to have breakfast or brunch. It's located in the area of Piazza Navona. You'll find it down a quieter side street, and will likely pass right by it if you didn't know it was there. Once you enter inside though, it is anything but ordinary. The mention of scrambled eggs, pancakes and French toast lured me there. The delicious food and lovely setting has kept me coming back.
Coromandel has more of an old world, French bistro feel. The cozy setting with fluffy pillows displayed on the bench, shelves of books, warm decor and dim lighting invites you to stay and linger.
Breakfast and pastries are served on the loveliest of china. I always feel spoiled here because everything is so pretty. Not only are the dishes and decorations lovely, but the food is delicious, too!
I was leary about ordering the French toast. This is not an Italian dish, and I'm not aware of it being on other menus around Rome. I ordered preparing for the worst, but was most pleasantly surprised. The French toast is delicious, and even comes covered in syrup. (Syrup is also not typical in Italy.) Now I can't hardly order anything else.
The cappuccino is also great, with a dish of sugar cubes served alongside. (I told you this place is fancy and makes you feel spoiled in the simplest of ways.) They also have iced coffee that is sweetened with almond milk, and it is also great if you're in the mood for something a little different.
Whenever I get a craving for French toast, or just want to feel a little special, I head to Coromandel.
P.S. - Coromandel also serves lunch and dinner. Although I've only had breakfast, I'm sure lunch and dinner dishes are equally as delicious.
