Monday is closing day for many restaurants in Italy so it becomes hard to eat!! We found this cute coffee shop that served also excellent soups and sandwiches, all complimented with a wonderful primitivo di Matera red wine!! Excellent find!

They offer the best croissants (as locals we call them "cornetti") in town! Just unbeatable! And their location is just perfect. Nice selection of organic, homemade teas. I highly suggest it for a break from the sightseeing!
