For 4 days we get to sit down to enjoy a coffee! I did just that this morning at Bar Italia in Ponte a Serraglio. It is difficult to choose which pastry to have.
Annalisa makes excellent panettone. They are beautifully packaged and will make great Christmas gifts.
After 4 days we go back to red and back to takeaway coffee.
My second venture out for coffee was to Catene Cafe in Fornoli.
It was great to see Paolo and Yanima…and the coffee and sfoglia were excellent as usual.
Every effort has been made to make the situation as safe as possible in this uncertain time. I will be back…It is great to be out and about again.
Paolo was the first person I met when I came to Bagni di Lucca. He is one of the reasons I came to love the village. It was great to see his happy face every morning at the bar across the bridge, and I missed him when he left.
He has just opened a brand new bar/cafe in Fornoli called Catene Cafe, named for the nearby bridge.
Call in and say hello to Paolo…have a coffee, lunch or an aperitivo. As soon as he has his gelateria up and running I will be back to get some more photos. Paolo makes the best gelato. I can’t wait to sample some of his pistachio, or nociola, or caramello…..
Good luck Paolo in your new venture!
