Cesaroni’s Cafe & Deli coming to Sycamore

In mid-February, Brad and Brandon Cesaroni plan to open the second location of Cesaroni's Cafe & Deli at 219 W. State St. in Sycamore. The restaurant will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

SYCAMORE – Sycamore’s newest spot for lunch is planning for a mid-February opening.

Cesaroni’s Cafe & Deli, 219 W. State St. in Sycamore, will be offer breakfast and lunch options seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Breakfast options include breakfast sandwiches, coffee and espresso. Lunch options include deli sandwiches and paninis, soups and salads.

“Lunch is what we’re known for,” said Brad Cesaroni, who owns the restaurant with his brother Brandon. “You can stop by for a coffee in the morning or lunch break with friends in the afternoon.”

In summer 2020, the brothers purchased the building, which was previously Ristorante di Acquaviva. Since then, they have been renovating the interior of the restaurant.

“We have completely gutted the entire thing because it really needed an update,” Brad Cesaroni said. “We did all of the demo work ourselves with our families.”

Cesaroni said that the interior matches that of the brothers’ other cafe and deli location in Woodstock.

“It will be modern yet slightly country or rustic,” he said. “Both restaurants have the same tile mosaic floor.”

He said that the goal is for the restaurant to be open by mid-February and at the latest in two months.

“We are super excited to open the doors in Sycamore,” he said. “We love the history of our building and of Sycamore. We take pride in our updates to the location and can’t wait to serve Sycamore.”
