“The best in Trieste!”
Reviewed 14 November 2012

There is no birthday, anniversary, celebration without a "Penso cake" in my family! Definitely the best in my opinion. I strongly recommend the "crostata": tell what you want on it and the size. Do not ask for gelatin on it:it is tasteless and useful only to increase the weight (and the price).

“Great Cafe”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

I truly enjoyed this cafe,
It is a very traditional cafe, not a modern one.
Go for breakfast, or for a sit down in the afternoon.

“Traditional Italian Pastries & Chocolates”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

The pastries and chocolates here were fresh and delicious. This is just a shop, but the are plenty of benches by the water a couple of blocks away, if you want to sit and eat.
