CalledPrinci, the eatery hasmore than 100 menu itemsincludingItalian-style pastries, focaccia sandwiches, salads and pizzas, with all breads and baked itemsmade in the store’s centerpiece oven. The first Princi locationopened Tuesdayat theStarbucks Reserve Roasteryin Seattle, and the company has plans to expand shortly.
Princi is a bakery chain with existing locations in Milan and London. In 2016,Starbucks announced it had struck a dealto bring it to the U.S., and will open Princi bakeries along with five more of its upscale Reserve locationsaround the world starting next month. The company said it plans toopen standalone Princi bakeries around the U.S. in 2018.
That means’Bucks fiends will soon be able to enjoywood-fired pizza, buffalo mozzarella and berry-filled tarts along with their coffee. Items are priced between $3 and $11.
A couple of food bloggers who reviewed Princi’s offerings say the pizza is “beautiful” and the pastries are “flaky and buttery” in a way that makes your mouth “do a happy dance.” The spot has yet to see any Yelp feedback, though it’s surely coming.
Earlier this year, Starbucksended its “Starbucks Evenings” program, which featured beer, wine and appetizer-like bitesserved after 4 p.m.in some locations. The company isnow starting to focus on lunch, USA Today reported in September. They’re currently offering new items like a hearty Cubano sandwich and cauliflower tabbouleh salad inselect Chicago and Seattle stores, withplans to expand the menu across the U.S.in the future.
This beats an egg bite any day.
