Caffetteria Modern Café & Marketplace is the latest concept from Jo Marie Scaglia, who owns The Mixx in Kansas City and Overland Park, Kansas. Fashioned after the stylish cafés found in Italy, Caffetteria opened in March in Prairie Village, Kansas, serving an eclectic menu based on fresh, seasonal ingredients.
The menu ranges from rustic starters like creamy pimento cheese spread with crackers to a protein-packed poke salad. Pizzas are made in a 4,800-pound custom Marra Forni pizza oven including the Thai-inspired King of Siam, with Thai peanut sauce, rotisserie chicken, julienned carrots, sunflower shoots, scallions, cilantro and red chile-hoisin sauce.
The soda fountain serves soft drinks in flavors such as lemon-berry-açai and orange-hibiscus. Coffee drinks, tea, wine and local kombucha are on tap, as well as draft and bottled beers, plus a Bloody Mary bar on weekends. Caffetteria offers a full coffee bar and pastry case, grab-and-go meals and a retail space stocked with jarred olives, house pimento spread and housemade pickles, in addition to dishware, cookbooks, hand towels and more.
