Italian café arrives in the center of DC before the end of the year

WASHINGTON, DC – Puro Gusto, an Italian café, opens its first U.S. restaurant in downtown Washington, DC, later this year

Translated as “pure taste”, Puro Gusto will serve Italian coffee, cakes, sandwiches and more. The all-day cafe will be located in the Westory Building, 1345 F Street NW.

Owned by global restaurant group Autogrill opened the first Puro Gusto in Milan, Italy, in 2006.

Its range of hot and cold Italian beverages throughout the day will include Shakerato, Crema Caffè and Americano, as well as non-Italian coffee such as traditional American brewed coffee, cold brew, nitro and a selection of hot teas.

Puro Gusto will serve a variety of croissants along with breakfast Pangusto, yogurt, fruit and cereal-based parfaits. For lunch and beyond, Pangusto offers tomato and burrata, fig and prosciutto and three cheeses and olives. A selection of salads, soups and paninis are also on the menu.

In the evening, Puro Gusto serves a selection of Italian beers and wines, as well as coffee-based cocktails. The food menu includes small plates such as stuffed figs, Crostini and Tuscan white bean hummus.
