Wanta Lottafrutta!

One of my favorite little sandwich shops, LottaFrutta, specializes in fresh cut fruit cups, which are commonly found in Central and South America and in other areas of the US as well. For some reason these have not been widely sold here in Atlanta, so this is a perfect addition in an accessible ITP location (Old Fourth Ward). I've tried both the Limonatta (my favorite so far) and the Cremolatta (pictured below). Both were very fresh and satisfying. The Limonatta is topped with fresh lime juice and spicy chile guajillo. If you haven't tried your fruit spiced like this, you really should put this place on your list. The sandwiches, all made on "soft, sweet Latin bread", are pressed to perfection, with gooey cheese oozing out. The Just Veggin' sandwich is heavenly - I think even meat lovers would be satisfied! The seating is limited here, although there are a few small tables. You can call ahead for easy pickup or eat out front if the weather's nice.

Just veggin' sandwich: havarti, grilled to perfection, then stuffed with avocado, tomato, cucumber & sprouts. Yum!

Mora (Andean blackberry) and Lulo (South American kiwi) fruit pops. These were both made with milk but some are made with juice.
