The Caffè - Pasticceria Cavour 1880 in Bergamo Alta belongs to the Locali Storici d’Italia (Historical Places of Italy) chain. It has always been a meeting place for Bergamo’s poets who gathered in the old “Ducato di Pontida” and, with the complicity of Bergamo Alta, around the Teatro Sociale, a historic landmark for artists including Tieri, Lionello, De Filippo and the maestro Gavazzeni, to name just the most recent. It is Viennese-style café with ancient frescoes and late 19th century friezes, its counter displaying delicacies in the grand tradition of the Master Patissiers of Da Vittorio. Each day they make croissants, biscuits and pastries for unforgettable breakfasts. Excellent patisserie, tens of different cakes and mignon pastries, spoon desserts, handmade ice-cream and Da Vittorio’s sweet and savoury specialties, perfect for treating oneself or others.
At lunchtime, the café serves exquisite snacks and buffets, which can also be made to order for business lunches and stylish aperitifs.
The famous Sunday brunch is not to be missed.
