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!
