Our Roots

A recent stroke of creativity by Randy Settenbrino materialized into the Sweet Dreams Cafe—an oasis of Italian savories and sweets, accompanied by a curated selection of fine wines and beers. Inspired by his beloved Nona Carolina's Trattoria Vesuvius, the menu reverently reflects her 1930's Italian artisan cooking. Each dish is a testament to painstaking craftsmanship, with handmade mozzarella, tantalizing raviolis, and mouthwatering gnocchi gracing the culinary offerings. The essence of Italian heritage infuses the sauces, whether creamy, aromatic, or robust, with each one meticulously concocted from scratch. The cafe becomes a haven of indulgence, where Italian desserts and delicacies are skillfully baked on-site, treating patrons to a symphony of flavors.

The aesthetics of Sweet Dreams Cafe further elevate the dining experience, immersing guests in a realm of artistic wonder. Faux hand-painted walls and artfully integrated artifacts create an atmosphere that is both visually stimulating and emotionally evocative. Captivating photographs by Lepkoff and paintings by Settenbrino himself grace the walls, transporting visitors to a bygone era where art and cuisine coalesce into an enchanting tapestry.

For those in search of an extraordinary escape, The Historic Blue Moon Hotel and Sweet Dreams Cafe beckon with their exquisite charms. The fusion of artistic brilliance, culinary prowess, and historical significance ensures an experience that is nothing short of exceptional. Surrender to the allure of these captivating establishments, where creativity and hospitality intertwine, leaving an indelible mark on every visitor's journey.
