If you would like to have breakfast in a place you’ve never been, but you want to play it safe by not giving up quality, you need to pay attention to two things: brioches and coffee. And you can’t go wrong if you choose Caffè Vergano 1882 Eataly Lagrange, because Caffè Vergnano is a Piedmont coffee roasting, synonymous of history and quality. Not to talk about the deliciousness of food products by Eataly: together they work perfectly. And if it is a beautiful sunny Saturday of fall, you’ll surely start the day in the best way possible.
Here you can choose a buttery croissant filled with excellent chocolate. Or a fresh krapfen, soft and not greasy at all, filled with a lemon-scented custard cream, which contrasts very well with the powdered sugar on top. (They would be literally perfect if the filling was more generous.) Or even jam croissants, tarts, cookies, muffins and whatever you can desire.
But if you are brave enough, why not to order a slice of Sachertorte? With its soft cocoa dough and its rich apricot filling – which sweetness perfectly contrasts with the bitter chocolate glaze – it is easily one of the best versions ever eaten, even if the recipe it’s not the original one.
They also make good coffee drinks (but we didn’t doubt it) served with a Biscoffee, a spiced cookie by Caffè Vergnano: you’ ll love it only if you like a strong cinnamon flavor and the famous Biscoff by Lotus. Good table service, but way too expensive: is this part of Eataly philosophy?
