With plenty of seating, free wifi, and fabulous fresh healthy food, Palio Caffè is the ideal place for a breakfast or lunch meeting with friends or colleagues.

We specialize in catering your office meetings. Baskets of food for early morning continental breakfast or luncheon meetings from the board room to the training seminar are attractively packaged so they can be placed directly on the table. We also offer festive box lunches for the working lunch or the meeting on-the-run. Traditional Northern Italian hot pasta entrees are delivered right from our oven to your conference room. At Palio Caffè we are dedicated to the preparation of tasty food using natural, fresh and often organic ingredients, and for the most part healthy and low-fat.

The Italian word for sandwich is panino, which derives from pane (bread). The importance of bread in the preparation of a panino is paramount to its taste. But what really makes the difference in our panini is that most of our panini ingredients are made fresh from scratch in our own kitchen every morning. Our panini are offered whole or half.

Palio Caffè is named for the bareback horse race "Il Palio" held annually since the thirteenth century to celebrate the harvest in the town of Asti in Northern Italy. Each panino bears the name of a parish horse entering this race.
