If you love BYOB Italian restaurant Urbano Cafe, get excited because they recently transformed their space “two doors down” from the restaurant’s entrance into a coffee shop and lunch cafe!
Updated January 2021
Urbano Cafe opened on Fitzhugh in 2009 right down from Jimmy’s with a quaint and neighborhood bistro type atmosphere. Homemade Italian food like caprese s’mores and lobster ravioli, a private room for group dining, and the BYOB option are just a few reasons this upscale restaurant is a beloved spot.
If you’re familiar with the Urbano space, it’s split into three sections, each with its own adorable Main Street-esque facade. The leftmost space with the piano and bar is the one converted into Two Doors Down. You’ll walk in to find the same decor — lots of mirrors, black and white family photos, and wood tables and chairs for a cozy and casual interior.
Drop by Tuesday through Saturday from 7 AM until 2:30 PM and grab some baked goods from East Dallas bakery, Leila, and a cup of coffee! Try their drip coffee and their breakfast dishes, which include french toast, eggs benedict, avocado toast and more! You can also get a quiche or a lunch item like soup or salad. We had the Parmesan chicken salad for $14, which was big enough to take home and finish later, plus a delicious tomato basil soup. We will definitely be back for the pesto chicken caprese!
