A look at Caffe Tosca’s truly extensive menu board will tell you why as it offers a range of delicious options for breakfast, lunch, afternoon treat and everything in between.

On the go early? Then why not tuck into a sausage, bacon and egg panini, go American with a bacon and maple syrup topped pancake or treat yourself to a taste of the Continent with a warm butter croissant.

For a light lunch, Caffe Tosca’s ‘savoury menu’ is packed with tempting options including quiche, sausage rolls, vol au vents and pizza baguettes.

Or, if it’s a sandwich you’re after be prepared to be spoiled for choice.

Select from traditional fillings such as tuna & onion and prawn salad with Marie Rose sauce, to roast chicken with grapes and mayo - or come up with your own filling as all sandwiches are made to order.

Also freshly made to order are toasted sandwiches, open sandwiches, filled bagels, panini’s and tortilla wraps!

Or why not have a sandwich & soup combo?

At Caffe Tosca, there are always two ‘soup of the day’ choices.

Eat in or take-away, the option is yours, Monday to Saturday from 9am - 5.30pm and Sundays from 12-5pm.

With seating for 50-plus customers and this coffee shop’s prime location between the Tower Shopping Centre and Fairhill Shopping Centre, the option of ‘sitting in’ is, not surprisingly, proving very popular.

Yes, the bright and spacious Caffe Tosca is a great place both to meet up with friends and to watch the world go by, especially as easy parking is close by at the Alexander Street Car Park and just beside Caffe Tosca is the pedestrian entrance to the multi-storey car park where you can park for only £1 for five hours.

And, as you do so, you can enjoy some outstandingly good home baked produce as Caffe Tosca serves a mouth-watering selection of treats made fresh each day by its Fairhill Shopping Centre based sister restaurant, ‘Sorrento’, including its popular scones, caramel squares and other traybakes.

And, bring the kids because Caffe Tosca is not only wheelchair friendly throughout but is buggy friendly thanks to its street level entrance.

High chairs are also available for little ones who require them and baby changing facilities and toilets are, of course, available inside the spacious premises.

So, whether you need a caffeine hit, a breakfast bagel, scone for elevenses, a sit down lunch or a tasty treat to takeaway, Caffe Tosca is ready to take your order.

So, why not call in today and wish us a ‘Happy Birthday’.
