Fiat Cafe is open at 203 Mott Street as of last night (map), one building south of Lombardi's. The cafe takes the place of a juice bar that spent as much time renovating the space as they did open for business—unfortunately, only a few weeks.
A quick glance inside last night showed a light menu of sandwiches and beverages, decorated with toy scooters on one wall.
It's unclear at this time if Fiat Cafe is a contrived Italian bar or the real deal, endearing as an outpost in rural Italy. Stay tuned...
UPDATE: They seem always to have a crowd of people enjoying their space at all times of day.
