Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and just because you're in a rush to get to the the Little Italy Mercato, doesn't mean you have to skip it. Whether it's a spot of tea or a cuppa joe, Joes on the Nose and Cafe Virtuoso are there for your morning caffeine fix. Seb's Panini has delicious breakfast sandwiches and Fabrison's morning themed crepes can't be beat. There's Belen Bakery for scones and Loic for pastries to fulfill that morning time sweet tooth. Granola Girl and Scratch both have crunchy wholesome granola to take home; perfect when topped with a sprinkle of berries from Pudwill and your favorite yogurt. And don't forget the OJ from Polito Farms or Paradise Valley Ranch!

For Sunday morning, pick up a bag of gluten-free muffin mix from Sustainable Pantry and slather them with jam from Impeccable Taste hot out of the oven. Or stock up on fresh eggs from Schaner Farm or Descanso Ranch, asparagus from Suncoast Farms and Firehouse Jack cheese from Springhill Farms. Can you say frittata? Start your mornings off right with fresh, local ingredients and a trip down to the Mercato.
