Sicily 1938. It was a time and place where life was simple, food was fresh and people cared about their neighbors.  We promise to awaken your culinary senses and change the way you shop, cook and eat.  For those who dream of simpler times when customers were an extension of the family, delicious meats and cheeses were served with pride, and taking time to enjoy a hot espresso with a decadent dessert was the rule and not the exception, we welcome you!

Cafe Gelato affogato

Franconi's is proud to serve Metropolis drip coffee.  Freshly roasted in Chicago, and delivered to Franconi's on a daily basis.  Perhaps you'd prefer a caramel frappuccino with a splash of raspberry.
