food & drink
Almost too beautiful to eat LOVERIA CAFFE The most authentic tastes from Italy now reside at this uber-modern and comfortably chic new place in Town Center Colleyville. Arriving recently from their hometown of Ravenna, near the Adriatic Sea in the Emilia Romagna region, the husband-wife team of Andrea Matteucci and Stefania Bertozzi brought partner and chef Michele Ragazzini along to show us what it is to eat and drink pure Italy. To that end, they offer exquisite Italian pastries made in-house to serve with espresso, which guests enjoy either while reading the newspaper or Italian art books in Loveria’s front lounge area or at cafe tables. The glass shelving in the front emporium is stocked with espresso you can brew at home, too. Just don’t forget to have a few of those pastries boxed up to take away, as well. 5615 Colleyville Blvd., Suite 410, 817-893-5880, loveriacaffe.com

Flower show ALL ABOUT CHA Good energy fills the space at this Korean tearoom and cafe,
an outpost from a minichain in Oklahoma. Light spills in through expansive windows, washing over tables filled with pairs of customers engaged in work over laptops and others just catching up on family news. Most eye-catching, however, are the beautiful glass teapots showcasing colorful botanicals used in brewing organic green tea blends. The prettiest include chrysanthemum, marigold, jasmine and/or rose blooms. Just as fetching are the brilliantly hued lunch and dinner salads.
