Fà-me Caffe is a Hidden Gem to be uncovered. Owner Ivan O’farrill says the meaning of the name fà-me is hungry, and comes from Latin roots. It is used in Italian and Portuguese; he says it is powerful because we are all hungry! O’farrill says the restaurant is going for a rustic, natural homey feeling, serving simple and healthy food.
O’farrill shares the secrets of the French toast served at Fà-me. It starts with artisan bread soaked in an egg custard flavored with vanilla, cinnamon and citrus. It is cooked in a skillet with clarified butter and browned on both sides. The toast is served with fresh berries and sprinkled with powdered sugar – beautiful and tasty.
O’farrill says when diners step in the restaurant they will get a European feel and that comes from his wife’s roots and her heritage and blends with his roots from Mexico. He says the fusion is important and makes Fà-me Caffe a unique farm to table experience.
