Ciao. We’re Gloria.
We are the culmination of years of thought, ideas and experiences, creatively expressed and executed by Renato Poliafito, one of the forerunners of the new wave of bakeries and coffeeshops that hit the NYC scene in the last decade. But first and foremost, Ciao, Gloria is a neighborhood café for the people of Prospect Heights and further, the people of Brooklyn. We will offer a specialty coffee and tea program, house made baked goods, along with a savory breakfast and lunch that is beautifully crafted, using quality ingredients, prepared with an Italo-American flair, in a nod to Renato’s Sicilian heritage.
WE’RE NOT CHANGING THE GAME, WE’RE JUST MAKING IT SWEETER.
WE'RE SWEET, SIMPLE, BRIGHT, BEAUTIFUL, TASTY, COZY AND FUN. WE'RE GLORIA.
