Caffe 8 1/2 Taking Over Caffe Bello In SM?

I’m not entirely sure what’s going on here, but I’ve noticed a lot of recent activity at the site that used to house Caffe Bello at 1912 Broadway Suite 100 in a quiet residential neighborhood of Santa Monica.  Caffe Bello apparently closed earlier in the year.  But signs have recently gone up (as well as a giant wall photo of Marcello Mastroianni in an homage to Federico Fellini’s famous film) announcing that the new lunch spot will be called Caffe 8 1/2.  The door promises a menu of classic Italian faves including panini, focacce, tiramisu, and espresso.  Let me know if you have more info, but in the mean time, I’ll keep my eye on it…

  1. Hi Todd,
    Thought I would leave an update on Caffe 8 1/2. It’s been up and running for about two months now and has attracted a regular following. They specialize in Italian coffee and hand pressed panini. It’s pretty spectacular!
