Europeans may be known for lots of wonderful things, but chief among them are incredible coffee and pastries.
At Palmieri Cafe inside the Dallas Farmers Market, each item — from the baked goods to the gelato — is made from scratch. He uses family recipes for the pastries, lovingly making cornettos, cannoncinos, pasticciottos, and graffas, all pure Italian delicacies.
Even the coffee is roasted in-house, which guarantees a gorgeous cup of Giuseppe.
The man behind it all is Corrado Palmieri, a Southern Italian from the province of Lecce, which is known as the "Florence of the South." This strip of land on the heel of the boot named Salento is also the capital of Italian baroque architecture.
So why leave Italy for Dallas? Palmieri wanted to open a true Italian coffee shop and bakery without compromises, only serving fresh, authentic, and natural items.
He certainly does that now, operating Palmieri Cafe from 7 am-6 pm daily. Watch the video to learn more, then visit Palmieri inside the Dallas Farmers Market the next time you need an excellent jolt of caffeine.
