|Fiore Market Cafe in South Pasadena is furnished with rustic antiques|
Fiore is a labor of love from the husband/wife team Bill and Anne Disselhorst. Bill managed M Cafe for several years; Anne's done catering and now bakes cookies and cupcakes for the cafe. Though Fiore opened in the midst of nonstop downpours, it's got a great patio waiting for summer sun and a few tiny tables inside.
Sandwiches on the simple menu include a short rib sandwich on Bill's homemade bread, roast beef with horseradish creme fraiche, a nod to M Cafe with a tempeh BLT and roast chicken with walnut pesto and burrata. Salads include roast chicken and maple glazed bacon, and nice-looking prepared salads in a case such as fennel slaw and spicy udon noodles. A laughing group of knitting ladies highly recommended the onion soup and lemon bar.
