Punxsutawney Phil officially saw his shadow this year for Groundhog Day, which means we’re in for a few more weeks of winter. Given this snow we’ve been having lately, we’re afraid he might be right. Fear not: Your favorite Springfield Missouri restaurant is the perfect spot to stop in and warm your weary bones.
Nothing cures those winter blues quite like a bowl of hearty pasta, a glass of wine or a cup of locally-roasted coffee. No need to hibernate until spring: Check out our roundup of some of the most winter-friendly dishes at Bambinos Cafe.
Wake Up (and Warm Up) with Bambinos Blend Coffee
We worked with the coffee experts at Mudhouse Coffee to craft our very own coffee blend, and it’s exactly what you need to power through the tail end of winter. This full-bodied, rich dark roast combines Central & South American beans for a satisfying, smoky roast. Come on in out of the cold and grab a cup with us—it pairs great with any of our homemade baked goods or a tasty dish of tiramisu.
Try Our Soup of the Day
There’s nothing like a steamy bowl of soup to warm your bones over a chilly lunch hour. Our soups are made fresh daily with a variety of tasty flavors like tomato bisque and white chicken chili. If you need a little extra something to get you through the workday, you can even get half a panini with soup for only eight bucks during the lunch hour.
Indulge in a Zesty Pasta Dish
It’s a known fact that pasta is an essential part of keeping one’s spirits up during a harsh winter. Any of our pasta dishes are stick-to-your-ribs good and served piping hot, but the Poppa might be one of Springfield’s best-kept winter secrets.
This zesty, hearty pasta dish features penne, Italian sausage and mushrooms cooked in a spicy tomato cream sauce. It combines sweet, spicy heat with hearty chunks of sausage and mushrooms for an entree that’s sure to warm even the chilliest bones.
Plus, nothing says winter comfort food like our traditional baked ziti made with tender chunks of roast beef braised in red wine and tomato sauce topped with a touch of cream and plenty of ooey-gooey mozzarella cheese.
