A hot tea or soup to warm the winter up

10 12 2011

There are some places which are able to surprise you with their simplicity and warmth.

The tea room Caffè Orientale (Oriental Coffee) is one of these places. There you can really find an oasis of peace and intimacy. A perfect corner to have a cup of tea while reading a book or to meet an old friend you haven’t seen for a while (as I did some days ago!). Or just to stare at the pictoresque canal outside.

At Caffè Orientale, a large selection of quality teas and infusions is carefully prepared and served with an extreme kindness. You can accompany your tea with a delicious home-made dessert, choosing among apple pie, English scones and other “grand-mother style” cakes. I tried the “apple-scrumble”, a sort of hot pudding with apples, cinnamon, millet and cream: unforgettable.

Here you can also enjoy a light lunch or an early dinner (they close at 9 pm), as they also serve some tasty vegetarian dishes and hot soups: “ribollita toscana”, chickpeas soup, tomato rice soup. Taste one of these plates together with their “schiacciata” (pizza paste with oil, salt and rosemary) and Caffè Orientale will become your little happy place, where to recover from the daily stress and bustle.
