​Pane e Tulipani

Como
Caffè Costadoro
The name of this café, found on an elegant street corner in Como’s old center means „Bread and Tulips“. They make bread on site, and tulips are placed in bouquets around the shop, but the name really evokes the Italian romantic comedy film from 2000.

That film was about finding love and happiness, and in many ways, so is this café. The smell of flowers and oven baked bread fills the air and mixes with the aroma of coffee. With your eyes closed, the place smells like an ancient bakery, coffee shop and larder rolled into one. The staff are very welcoming, and they didn’t hesitate to offer us a coffee even when the bar was closed. Almost every object in the house is an antique piece, tastefully used to create a very cozy and uplifting atmosphere.

Pane e Tulipani has many facets and much to offer. At one end is Café Fleurs, a corner dedicated to enjoying coffee at the bar, Italian style. From there one can explore connected rooms that lead to another bar and terrace that offer snacks, fresh fruit juices in addition to coffee and tea.

Pane e Tulipani is where the Italian way of enjoying life is at its best. As far as coffee is concerned, the barista will get the best out of his Costadoro blend – no surprise since the 2 out of 3 Gambero Rosso “coffee beans” rating.

Pane e Tulipani, Via Lambertenghi, 3, 22100 Como.
