Slow Food Movement

What we believe in is the  ‘the Slow Food Movement’.

When the Lucci's opened their restaurant in 1991, they were aiming to be everything fast food wasn’t.

Their commitment was to buy local as much as possible, cook food that was good for you, while supporting the local farmers, and their use of  sustainable methods, which in turn would be good for the planet.

The Back When Cafe  menu is  pure and simple, using only the most fresh and natural  ingredients, with  some innovative twists, an a accent  on Mediterranean and French.
