I love breakfast in Italy. What’s not to like about a flaky warm croissant, cappuccino, and fresh squeezed orange juice?
We arrived to the airport in Rome a bit late this morning and the two Schengen Priority Pass lounges were not close to our B-Gate departure. No problem: breakfast was only 4,70EUR.
Leonardo DaVinci Airprot in Rome is full of traditional Italian coffee shops, but John…as the proud of owner of several Mercedes…was drawn to the Mercedes Benz café.
I’m not sure what the name of the lounge accomplished—it was just like any other coffee shop save for the Mercedes Benz logo on the cups. But the name drew John…and the coffee and orange juice were excellent.
Instead of paying 4,70 for the breakfast combo I paid 4,50 for just the coffee and orange juice. Certainly I could have just taken the croissant for the picture, but 1.) I did not want to waste it and 2.) I did not want to eat it. The croissants looked excellent and I did not even want to tempt myself with unnecessary carbs with a fairly sedentary day ahead.
Cappuccino is 1,50EUR if you drink it at the counter and double the price if you take it to go. Someone told me that is by law in order to make “Italian culture” affordable to every Italian.
Anyway, the Italian breakfast is one of my favorite things about Italy. I love standing at a café counter drinking a great cup of coffee.
