We went there on Sunday for a small breakfast. Ordered two coffees and two croissants. Not delicious, but OK. Paid 8 euros.

We recently had a long weekend in Bergamo with friends and this was the fist place we found for a coffee and a light bite to eat. It's in a great central location, and has a very stylish interior.

Having heard good things about this place I decided to give it a go for my solo Bergamo breakfast - I sat outside in under the arches, lovely but surprisingly empty. The array of pastries was fantastic, and there are lots of cute little chocolates to take back home. I ordered a cappuccino and a pain au chocolat - both... More

Located in the centre of Bergamo, this café is good but pretty expensive....a breakfast (capuccino + croissant) costs € 4,20!! It's more expensive than a breakfast at the famous Peck ( € 3,00) in Milan!!
