Caffe Lucca, Orange, California
Snuggled between the antique shops of quaint downtown Orange, California sits an Italian Cafe with the best cappuccino I’ve found in Orange County.
I am challenging anyone who can beat their cappuccino. The baristas know what they’re doing. The coffee is served in ceramic cups (unless you want take-out) and the foam on top is thick and creamy with a design on top.
Most chain coffee stores offer up airy foam in a paper cup and there is no marriage of the coffee and the foam. At Lucca’s, you can see immediately that this is true Italian style. Try it!
Their meals are delicious and gelato is available…but for me – the star of the show is the cappuccino.
Otherwise, I’d have to fly to New York City or Rome to duplicate it.
