Welcome to Caracalla Coffee & Bread
When you first walk in, you’re hit with the sight of the gorgeous multi-coloured bagels on display and the smell of freshly home-brewed coffee. It’s a spot so quaint that there are only two parking spots and a few indoor tiny tables, so it’s best to park elsewhere and walk in.
If the weather is nice, there is a gorgeous area outside perfect for catching some of that famous Okinawan sun, sitting with your dog, and sipping some of their creamy iced coffee.
The staff, who I assumed were the owners, spoke very little English but were extremely warm and inviting. They had two types of hot coffee on the menu and several other iced coffees available. In addition, they had other sandwiches and teas that could be purchased. They all looked delicious, but I had my heart set on the gorgeous Rainbow Bagels!
Now, about the rainbow bagels: It was surprisingly fluffy upon first bite. It definitely didn’t have the same chewiness that most bagels have. The rainbow bits weren’t flavored, but the cream cheese was. It was topped with the perfect pairing of wild berry cream cheese (with tiny of fruit) and the obviously fitting rainbow sprinkles.
The area was filled with delighted children and adults alike, everyone seemed to enjoy them… But don’t take my word for it, see it for yourself!
