September 4 to 7, 2018:  We were so lucky to be able to stay at a BnB which provided daily included breakfast at a local cafe!  The host must have struck a deal with this La Pasticceria Siciliana bakery in order to offer free vouchers every day of our stay.  We got these pink cardboard cards that we exchanged for a free hot beverage and pastry every single day of our stay!  It was a best way to get a hot meal to start off our days and to try a local cafe altogether.  It was fantastic.

Like I had mentioned in my blog, this wasn’t just a dinky cafe that was in partnership with the BnB but a legitimate and popular Italian bakery that offered fresh pastries every day with a gelato bar too (we didn’t get to try the gelato here on this trip).

The cafe itself was brightly lit, filled with so many fresh pastries and baked goods every day, and the staff were pleasant and friendly to us every day.  It was popular here from morning to night as we saw many visitors enjoy their breakfasts like us in the morning at the counters and also lots of visitors during the night (for I’m assuming coffee or desserts) when we passed by at night.

Here are the items we tried during the four mornings that we redeemed our morning breakfasts:

First breakfast was a bit rushed as we were heading to the Vatican Museum but I was impressed with the quality of their caffe latte and cream and chocolate croissants!

We arrived around noon so there weren’t as many croissants

Second breakfast was also a little rushed and since we arrived to the bakery a little later, there were only simple croissants left in the display.  They were still great!  I had the caffe latte a second time.  I like how the warm milk was so comforting.

For our third breakfast, I paid one extra Euro to upgrade my usual pastry into something else that was behind the glass displays.  I wanted to try something new!  I tried the Cestino di Melle (apple slices on top of a custard tart) and this was so delicious especially after being warmed up.  Amazing bakery, really!  Again, I had the caffe latte.  I mean when you don’t drink caffeine, you really don’t have a lot of choices in a bakery.

For the fourth and final breakfast redemption at La Pasticceria Siciliana, I got a cannoli!  I had seen a man order it for breakfast the previous day and was so curious about it because it was huge and looked amazing with freshly filled cream inside the cannoli upon ordering.

It lived up to the hype!  The cream was so soft and creamy while cool and cold, which contrasted with the crispy cannoli shell.

Even though I’m not a huge fan of almonds, I chose it since that was one of the choices (I don’t remember all of the ones offered to me, but I know another one was pistachio).  The cream was indeed almond flavoured and there were even bits and pieces of ground almond coated on to the cream too as a finisher.  It was such a great cannoli and easily the best one I’ve ever had. :O

It was a giant cannoli for breakfast!

Ken also redeemed his final pastry from this cafe with an extra Euro for an almond treatment.  This was shaped like a horn and small in size.  It was sweet and chewy.

It was bittersweet to leave this morning routine behind as we left Rome.  If you are ever in this part of Rome, I highly recommend this cafe for pastries and a cup of caffe latte!  (The popular pizzeria Bonci is also just around the corner!)
