“A hidden gem off the beaten path in Umbria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

If you are in the area of Perugia and passing thru the medievil towns of Castiglione Del Lago/Paciano or Panicale.. YOU must stop in to have a gander of the pastries and delights that GMB has.. AMAZING food and the decor is nothing that you will see in all of Umbria..(Especially a pastry shop).. At night they have appetizers and wine.. AMAZING.. One complaint..NO Wifi. A bunch of the smaller caffe's around the villages now offer it and they don't..Won't deter me from going BUT it keeps me from staying longer to eat more and drink more.. A must try when in town.

“bad for diets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

As I live near this place, I seem to visit it at least once a week. Lots of sandwhich choices served on Foccaccia or many other fresh breads baked daily there. Sweet if kitch ambiance, but a relaxing place for a light lunch, outside when the weather is nice, in the large glass enclosed structure otherwise. The pastries look AND TASTE AS GOOD as the picture here.

“Best little Pastry shop in Italy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

If you are in this area make your holiday complete by enjoying a coffee and pastry at this wonderful place. It is just a delight in every way from its unexpected situation to the lovely surprise when you get the bill. The pastries (and savouries) are to die for. The service is out of this world. A not to be missed experience.

GMB made a great cake for my wife, Kath's, special birthday and treated us like gold when we had coffee there. Amazing place.
