We prepare all our food at the Fat Tuscan Cafe in-house using only the freshest ingredients available.  Our traditional recipes use only natural ingredients (never using products with artifical coloring or preservatives).  We even roast our own beef and turkey breast for all our sandwiches and panini's, insuring our quality is the best in town.  Our pasta sauces are all made fresh and from scratch as well as our unique soups. 

Come in, sit for a while in the historic ambiance of the 1908 Vidal house on the edge of Gainesville's Downtown Historic District. We encorage you to sample one of our fresh French Press coffee's or espresso's and escape into the authentic European Cafe experience here at the Fat Tuscan.    

We post our specials on Twitter & Facebook daily!
