Louis Vuitton continues to masterfully explore the intersection between fashion and gastronomy, after the opening of a summer pop-up in Saint-Tropez. Now, the luxury brand lands in Italy with a concept synchronized with that aesthetic trail of evocative blue tones of Mediterranean inspiration with which it reinforces the heritage and the traveling essence of the house.  

The ‘Louis Vuitton Café by Timeo‘ is presented as a fashion concept store that will also offer food, entertainment or technology, beyond the sartorial collection of Louis Vuitton stores.

The coffee shop is located on the second floor of the Grand Hotel Timeo store, located in the central Corso Umberto, under the reins of Belmond, who will be in charge of all its operations.


In this design space composed of Bulbo armchairs by Fernando and Humberto Campana, among ceramic tiles matching the Mediterranean color scheme, breakfast, lunch and appetizers will be served, as well as the menu directed and supervised by chef Roberto Toro, who will reflect his vision of the most characteristic Sicilian delicacies.

The new menu notes describe the dining experience as ‘an authentic and joyful culinary journey that stays true to the traveling spirit of Louis Vuitton’ that will feature some dishes such as arancini, also known as stuffed fried rice balls, and drinks such as Taormina Spritz.

Toarmina’s store will once again showcase its ‘The Pool collection of ready-to-wear, handbags, footwear and accessories, as well as a special edition of the iconic ‘Neverfull’ bag sheathed in the concept’s color palette throughout.
