Are you longing for a tiny taste of Italy? If you’ve ever been, you’ll know what I mean. It’s that kind of destination that captures your heart and soul, and where memories linger inside your mind for an eternity. Well, let Enid Grace Culinary & Piccolina, in Wellington of Prince Edward County, take you there. Step inside this swoon-worthy, stylish café and you’ll be transported to Italy. This is a place you’ll definitely want to add to your itinerary.
Start your day exploring The County with a typical Italian breakfast tradition of coffee and pastry. For Italians, that usually means your milk-based coffees before 11am like cappuccino, caffe latte or latte macchiato. With espresso being any time of day, especially when you need that energy jolt. And, it’s always accompanied by a fresh, sweet Italian pastry.
Sit, sip and dolce far niente…an Italian phrase for doing nothing and enjoying it
Piccolina means small or tiny in English. A tiny taste of Italy, or maybe it’s referencing the tiny vignettes found throughout the café
End your day exploring The County with a typical Italian afternoon tradition of Aperitivo, consisting of a little snack and drink. For Italians, that might start with an espresso or caffe corretto, a coffee with a splash of grappa or sambuca, but more than likely, ends with an Italian cocktail, wine or beer.
Want to get in the kitchen and try your hand at making a traditional pasta, bread or pastry? Join a cooking class with ‘Enid in the Teaching Kitchen’ where you can learn some of Italy’s classic recipes. Or perhaps be treated to a traditional Italian meal by taking a seat at ‘Enid’s Table’ for a Sunday dinner. Check out the details of both of these experiences here.
Enid Grace is the owner and operator, and I got the chance to have a quick chat about her inspiration. Like kindred spirits, she too has fallen in love with all things Europe. From the food to the culture. This was a chance to bring a little piece of that to her local roots of the Prince Edward County community. And, she succeeded! Go to Enid Grace Culinary & Piccolina and enjoy the simplicity and beauty of the Italian café experience.
