A real treat here for a morning coffee and pastry, lunchtime savoury snack, teatime coffee and biscuit and even cake or tarts in lieu of restaurant pudding (an option we exercised at least twice when other restaurants failed). The hardest part is picking and choosing what to have, cake- or pastry-wise: there are usually half a dozen exquisite tarts, including an amazing torta de la nonna, cakes, elegant pastries and biscuits (jam filled or plain), meringues and a wonderfully dense and intensely fruity bun on offer. (This was particularly good.) These can be bought from an extensive Pick 'n Mix displayed in glass fronted cases - wonderful. My own favourite, soft and fragrant amaretti, both large and small, taste quite different from the usual dry variety found in the UK, and were a revelation. A common sight was seeing customers buy trays and boxes full of these sweetmeats to take home: Sardinians have a very sweet and discriminating tooth. Coffee here was always first-class, and just like the cake, here, a cappucino (or cappucio) tastes quite different from overhyped barista-made franchise stuff in the UK. Dulcis paticceria have a wide variety of teas too: which is unusual. When you have coffee this good, though, why bother with tea?
(Open 'till very, very late too - which is worth remembering.)
Utterly, utterly delicious!

Came here for the Lemon Meringue but weren't too satisfied with it. Shop's design and presentation are captivating, but its quality in terms of taste is not up to scratch.

It's a lovely pastry cafe where you can relax and have a wonderful cup of tea.
Enter into this enchanting little corner of paradise featuring typical Mediterranean architecture with pastel colored furniture in pleasant surroundings.

We went for coffee and cake. Very nice place, very fresh inside but also with a terrasse. Wide choice of cakes, delicious! And the cappuccino also excellent. Nice, friendly service. And very cheap!!! A must-go!

A dear friend recommended this place, they have a small tea selection, awesome Spritz, great pastry and they don't bother you with the bill right after you are done eating the last crumb (as it sadly happens in many places at Cagliari).
They have a light music background so you can talk and not listen to your neighbor's conversation.
The girl servers are very nice as well.
I would recommend this place for a nice afternoon Friend's Get together.
