“AMAZING PASTRIES!!”

Reviewed 16 July 2017

A small café a good way along the famous old shopping street in Naples (like Naples equivalent of York Shambles, but 5 times as long and with better food!).
We were ready for a coffee so sat down and ordered a couple of cappuccinos (tasty, a little smaller than in the UK).
The highlight however is the pastries...oh my god! They are delightful.
The one that looks like a pastry equivalent of an armadillo is unassuming to look at. but the taste and texture is to die for. The pastry is layered in a conical way, and the filling is like a cross between cheesecake and a light crème patisserie. I am not selling this well, but trust me...try it!
We also had the Lemon special Baba. All the fun of a traditional Baba, but with a subtly lemon/limoncello layer. Very boozy, but also tastes lighter than it should.

So for this café, a strong four stars for coffee. Location is a 5. Pastries would be a 6!

Prices are sensible (12 Euro for two coffees and two amazing pastries)

Random prices.
Tried to ask for a price before buying
Was told the product is paid per weight and got some estimation. But after getting even smaller piece paid the same and nobody even tries to scale it.
It wasn't peak hour also.

Just one of many little cafes in Naples, but we spent a pleasant hour here drinking a spritz, chatting in half-Italian with the servers. Nothing extraordinary, but I recommend it. The sfogliatelle looked really good, but we did not try them.

We stumbled across this place. We had a tour at the Napoli Sotterranea and this cafe is directly across the Via. We enjoyed some wonderful pastries and beverages here while waiting for our tour. It was a pretty happening place as well, alot of neighborhood people getting their morning espressos.

We thought it was counter service, but the guy told us to have a seat and he waited on us. They also have Free WiFi.

A visit to Naples without eating several helpings of the pastry delicacies of Naples is not really a visit at all.
