Italian Breakfasts

My typical breakfast at home consists of several large mugs of coffee. I have very little interest in food in the morning...UNLESS I am in Italy!

Breakfast in Italy can be anything from 2-3 lattes, to a full meal!
Last summer in Montalcino I would walk the empty streets around 6AM, and then was there when the caffe opened at 7.


I enjoyed a bit more on the lovely outdoor breakfast terrace in Torino.


Sometimes breakfast looks more like lunch. Here is one morning's breakfast plate in Bologna:


The Quisisana in Capri has an amazing buffet breakfast:

By FAR, my FAVORITE Italian breakfasts came from Baur's B&B



I look forward to leisurely coffee and a cornetto in a Roman caffe soon!

Those are some lovely breakfast spreads! Breakfast really is my favourite meal of the day, and I love Italian breakfasts (the great yogurts and fruits and different kinds of breads and best of all -- fantastic COFFEE!)

The Baur breakfast does look great. And I love their dishes, that's top of my shopping agenda for Umbria. I desperately need dishes.

We look forward to breakfast in bed in Montisi!


OOOH those Baur breakfast shots bring back some great memories!



Nobody equals Diane's breakfast!!!

I think I have that same shot of the breakfast patio in Torino. What great memories of breakfast there each morning I was in Torino. I am looking forward to seeing those plates in Bologna again :) Funny how we have stayed in two of the same hotels. I am also looking forward to seeing Diana again this summer, although not for breakfast. She sure puts on a good spread. Enjoy your leisurely coffee and a cornetto in a Rome.

Susan, GMTA!


Yum! I am hungry just looking at the photos!

It won't be long until you are there in person to partake of the wonderful Italian breakfasts!

Palma, I had to look that up! I can't believe I didn't know that. How sweet...and I agree :)

Diana's breakfasts are the BEST! But, Jerry, Sandi, and I think you can surpass her....at least for us!

Nice post! I hope to have breakfast at Baur BB some day...
