The very name of Elk Bakery emphasizes that here they do not care much about the local traditions. They would rather take you elsewhere, maybe to New York or Chicago, instead of opening yet another traditional diner in Verona. Borgo Trento is the most expensive and prestigious neighborhood in the city, and all the cool crowd meets here. Elk Bakery is loved by local young people who dream of going somewhere far away from Verona.
The fantasy of the cooks and cosmopolitan concept of the place allows us to go against stereotypes. Here they will not be surprised if you ask fried eggs for breakfast and know what a club sandwich, a salmon bagel, or maple syrup pancakes are. Still, the quality of the food is at the highest level, or else the Italians wouldn’t have come here anymore.
