Breakfast in Rome {Coromandel}

Breakfast in Rome
Elegant bacon and eggs 

Most mornings find me with a mug of American style coffee in front of my computer. Some days I am still there working until well after lunchtime. I almost never think to go outside for something to eat.

On a recent summer morning, some of my twitter turned In Real Life pals invited me to breakfast at yet another of the recent, swanky, Rome restaurant openings.
Coromandel, located just around the corner from Piazza Navona, just might be the prettiest spot to have a meal in town. From the brass door handle in the shape of an elephant to bone handled cutlery to the delicate Limoges style plates and cups, it is an elegant design delight. 

And, the food is extraordinarily delicious. There are set sweet and salty menus to choose from or an a la carte menu.  The table filled with pastries and breakfast cake is difficult to resist.  We sampled scrambled eggs & crispy guanciale, light as air popovers with melted cheese and proscuitto cotto. There is a croissant that met with French approval (and much discussion of the qualities and merits of French versus Italian butter) 


To drink on a hot Roman morning there is iced coffee with almond milk and made to order juices with a healthy zing of ginger.


I really should leave my desk more often.

  4. I'm also guilty of being reluctant to leave the house (or my desk) but if I lived in Rome, it's *possible* that those popovers and prosciutto could lure me away...

  5. Oh, and may I add that the breakfast cheese is plain gorgeous? http://flic.kr/p/cKmaGA

  6. The crispy guanciale is pure awesomeness! Popovers are my favorite, hope to visit Rome soon. I would not want to leave a restaurant with shelves of books, they would tuck me in the place for hours!
