In the Piazza dei Signori in Vicenza, this is the perfect place to have a quick lunch while enjoying a beautiful view of the Basilica. Divided over two floors, it's quite a busy spot, but the tables are served quickly. In good weather, I recommend sitting on the small terrace on the first floor ... alone with your dreams.
This fabulous pastry shop overlooks the Piazza dei Signori, and is a real temptation for the senses: when you look in the window at the bright colours of the cakes and pies, how could you not be lured in? Upon entering, we were overwhelmed by the aromas ... cakes, coffee, cream ... wow! It's almost impossible to choose from the selections on offer, but everything we tried was delicious.
That Illy coffee is one of the most popular in Italy is a fact. So when you're in the shadow of the Palladian Basilica, where better to go for a good coffee? Illy is located in the city centre and offers the full range of the legendary Trieste coffee: espresso, chocolate, cold coffee with cream ... delicious! Here also they sell coffee machines to take home, coffee cups, and all you could ask for!
Winter has arrived ... what could be more comforting than a cup of coffee and a zabaglione? In the Cafe Pigafetta, you'll find delicious chocolates and lovely local coffees ... in fact, they blend their own secret variety here, the best in the city! High-quality tea, too, from China, India and Ceylon, with aromas of spices, flowers, fruits and exotic herbs. There's an area for snacks, too, and a place where you can buy gifts, like teapots and boxes of chocolates.
This is a perfect spot for a lunch break on the fly, or a coffee with friends. The atmosphere is very welcoming, made more green by the leaves of the climbing plants that adorn the ceiling. The staff are priceless, always ready to put customers at ease and greet you with a smile. Abundance Brunch allows you to enjoy a delicious lunch spending very little and eating well: try the vegetarian focaccia at € 2.20!
This is one of the most interesting Gothic buildings in Vicenza, the headquarters of Cioccolato chocolate. Chocolate with nuts, with chili, with rum, with paprika ... there's so much on offer here! The gift packages are wonderful, original, and ideal for any occasion! Lovers of toast and sandwiches will also find something here, and you can enjoy salted almonds and chocolate covered coffee beans ... delicious!
