LAHAINA — Emanuela De Lucchi plans to open Espresso Italiano on Tuesday, Dec. 1, in Lahaina.

The menu features coffee, espresso, cappuccinos and lattes, fresh fruit smoothies and a daily fresh assortment of bagels, pastries, cakes and gourmet sandwiches for a fast snack.

“I’m Italian and I’ve been doing this for more than 20 years,” she explained.

The new venture at 180 Dickenson St., Suite 115, will have outdoor seating.

“I will donate a percentage of my sales to Sacred Hearts School. My daughter is a student there, and I think they’re doing such a great job with our kids. This is my way to give back to the community,” said De Lucchi.

The store will be open Mondays through Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information, call 661-6216.
