We stumbled upon Benissimo when looking for a breakfast spot in Casco Viejo. There are not many places open for breakfast. I figured we would just have a coffee to start the day but Benissimo offers some wonderful sweet and savory pastry options. We shared a meat empanada (outstanding!!) and a chocolate croissant (fabulous!!). And the cappuccinos were extremely good. My husband asked for milk for his coffee and they warmed and whipped it as well. So very very good. The staff was extremely friendly. The selection of gelato looked so good we made it a point to return later in the day for a "gelato lunch". The memory of the passion fruit gelato makes my mouth water. The strawberry gelato was very good. We split a 3rd serving of lemon gelato that was just wonderful. Benissimo is a wonderful place to either start your day and stop in and take a break from the head of the day!! So so yummy!!
