Breakfeast served American-style at Alt-Italian cafe

Published February 14, 2007


Primi Urban Cafe has restarted its breakfast service with a local Gold's twist. The South African owners of the alt-Italian restaurant had served breakfast on their own, but decided to turn that over to Tony and Anna Dabrowski when the pair closed Gold's Coffee Shop around the corner on First Avenue N. Primi owners Arno and Irene Von Waltsleben bought some new equipment and now the Dabrowskis are serving traditional American breakfasts from 7-11 a.m. The Von Waltslebens still cook their South-African inspired Italian menu for lunches and dinners. The restaurant is at 27 Fourth St. N. Information: 895-4909.

Lots of changes at Tedesco's Grillside

Tedesco's Grillside has changed owners, hours and its menu. The restaurant no longer serves breakfast, instead offering lunch and dinner with a new Southern American menu with items like pecan-encrusted fried chicken, meatloaf and barbecue catfish. The restaurant, at 437 Central Ave., also has a Sunday brunch. Information: 894-2802.

New mattress line will benefit CASA

Commercial Bedding is introducing its line of premium mattresses from its Childs Park production plant with a promotion to benefit CASA. The Panache luxury memory and latex foam mattresses are aimed at middle and upper income customers. A portion of the proceeds from Panache St. Petersburg retail sales will be donated to CASA, a nonprofit that provides services to domestic violence victims. Panache will be sold in St. Petersburg at DOMA Home Furnishings, 2540 22nd Ave. N.
