Friendly Pastry & Coffee Shop Sep 13, 2013
I adored this friendly little pastry and coffee shop in Volterra! I'm a coffee snob and nobody can make an espresso like Italians. When I see an Illy sign in Italy, I have to stop. I practically made a beeline over to this place.
The employees here were super friendly and welcoming although none of them spoke a bit of English. It was so much fun to try out my Italian and communicate with them! I asked the friendly woman at the counter which pasty was her favorite and she pointed to this tasty little chocolate goodie (see photos). It was delicious and not too sweet and was the perfect accompaniment to my espresso. My husband had a latte and loved it too.
The shop uses real Illy artist cups (and sells some of the older sets too if you are a collector) and has some locally made Italian candy for sale. In Volterra, you don't have to pay to sit down to enjoy your coffees as you do in the larger cities. It was a welcome change since our feet were exhausted from a long day of walking along the town's cobblestone streets. Stop in and have a tasty espresso and treat if you are in Volterra.
