In one of Como’s cute streets you’ll find one of my favourite coffee bars named Loft. Not only do they serve the best coffee here, you can also enjoy it while you are looking at the most amazing view. You are overlooking the houses with the mountains in the background on one side and on the other side you have a view over the church. You can hear the church bells in the background as you sit in the sun enjoying the Italian lifestyle.
Although not many people know about it, it’s a very popular hotspot with the locals. The fact that lots of locals love it is always a good sign! And as it’s a rather secret place you can really enjoy some quiet time with an amazing cappuccino or have an aperitivo with some friends!
What to have
I come here especially for the coffee. In the morning I love to get a delicious soya cappuccino and in the afternoon an espresso. When drinking an espresso you can really taste that the coffee they make here is pure, short, delicious and not at all bitter or watery – exactly how it should be!
On late afternoons they also serve aperitivo which is amazing. Enjoy a delicious glass of wine with some snacks and enjoy the afternoon warmth while overlooking the streets of Como and the beautiful mountains.
Where to go
Loft is open on Monday to Thursday from 9.30am- 10.30 pm, on Friday and Saturday from 9.30am- 2pm and on Sunday 9.30am- 12am. The address is Via Pietro Boldoni 5 in Como.
It truly is a spot that you cannot miss when visiting this beautiful place! Here you will live the true Italian lifestyle everyone dreams about!
