Via Veneto Sunday

17 Jun

Today we visited the posh and beautiful Via Veneto for Sunday pastry: a chocolate croissant the likes of which I have never had. Creamy dark chocolate encased in flaky goodness. Served with fresh-squeezed orange juice and excellent espresso.

Today we did not breakfast alone. Friends Wally and Nick joined Ric and I for our weekly, leisurely indulgence.

Wally, Laurel, Ric and Nick enjoy La Prima Colazione.

    Love the photos. You look lovely Laurel. Ric looks rested and happy. Think of you often.

    I’m drooling with each Sunday post! Yummy pastries and the sites are to die for! Thanks (I think.. 🙂 ) for sharing!

    Hi Laurel & Ric! I love the picture! Happy Father’s Day, Ric! Your Sunday pastries have had a good effect on me! I won’t even peak at the Starbuck’s offerings when I pass them for my coffee. And probably I would have trouble drinking their coffee if I had sips of yours.

      Amen, Carol! Starbucks coffee not the same, but I think it’s the sense-of-place that makes each food or drink seem special, even coffee. Our coffee bar one morning gave us “American coffee” instead of the “lungo” we requested: not the same, not right for this place. Keep drinking Starbucks, we own stock. 🙂

      I wish I remembered to take more food pics! Presentation of even the simplest food is often so lovely. You’d think all we do is eat out, but I do cook sometimes (really!). Nick and Wally are from Portland. Nick and I went to Italian class together for 3 years. They had planned a trip to Italy before we even knew we were moving here, so it was fortuitous to be able to see them here. Ciao!

    Could you just send me a bite of your pastry? It looks so good. How about a sip of some of that wine I saw on your kitchen counter in one of your earlier posts. Joyce
