A local Tuscan coffee, pastry and dining destination, Pappalecco, now has five locations throughout San Diego County. The stores, or “homes” as the brother-owner duo like to call it, are located in Little Italy, Hillcrest, Kensington, Cardiff by the Sea, and now, Del Mar Highlands, which opened in mid-December 2016. The extensive menu includes breakfast, organic coffee, paninis, pizza, salads, gelato, homemade pastries, wine and beer, and more.
Pappalecco was founded in Little Italy in April of 2007. Two and a half years later, the Bucci brothers opened a second location in Hillcrest. In 2012 Pappalecco opened the central kitchen in Point Loma. Chef Lorenzo considers the Point Loma kitchen “the heart” of Pappalecco, the place where all creations see the light and the place where his “grandma’s recipes” materialize and transform into Tuscan creations.
All Pappalecco menu items including its bread, pastries and gelato are made locally at its production kitchen in Point Loma. Pappalecco’s food items are all made with five simple ingredients imported from Tuscany to stick to the culinary principles that emphasize freshness, quality and simplicity of the Tuscan lifestyle.
