Day one, ice-cream was compulsory. L’Arte del Gelato does delicious gelato. The first time I visited, I ordered my typical chocolate and nutty flavours. They were so smooth and creamy. The second time (after a big brunch) I had peach, passionfruit and berries. The peach really tasted like a fresh peach, just in ice form instead of flesh. All three was deliciously refreshing. My aunt loves the pistachio one.
Amy’s Bread is apparently famous. For breakfast I tried one of their ‘Almond Brioche Toasts’. It was in between an almond croissant and French toast, with the inside creamy and flavoured with almond, and the top covered with almonds and icing sugar.
|Yummy almond brioche. It went very well with a good coffee.|
|Mastery at work.|
|Waiting while wondering where in the world I should head next...|
|And moments later: my delicious coffee.|
