Best coffee with a panoramic view

 

In one of Como’s cute streets you’ll find one of my favourite coffee bars named LoftNot 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!

Spending Ferragosto in the mountains of Cancano

So there we were driving up the mountain, turn by turn, climbing higher and higher. The higher we got the more snow was seen on the tops of the mountains. Its something special being in the mountains in the summer. Its warm, you are swimming in the lake, yet you see the snow in the distance.

It was a special day in Italy! Ferragosto! A day to spend with friends and celebrate the summer! And whats is a better place to celebrate the summer than in nature, with friends, in the sun, fooling around, eating, drinking, smoking, laughing and talking.  But we decided not to go to any place in nature, a special day calls for a special place, and we found it.

From St-Moritz we made our way to the cutest mountain town named Bormio. After  a little break with a focaccia and the most delicious coffee we got back on track and started our climb up the mountains to Cancano.

Now, these mountains are something special. You look up and you feel so small, so overpowered by nature, its amazing. You look down over the edge and see the most turquoise water you have ever seen. No really, EVER. This landscape is one of the most impressive, and memorable landscapes I have ever seen. The landscape is white from the rocks, vibrant green from the trees and turquoise from the sky to the water.

We drove up, parked the car, and hiked our way up even more until we reached the most beautiful spot. There we sat down at a wooden hut where they made us traditional home made mountain food, cooked by local mountain people themselves. You could taste the rawness and the passion for nature and food in every bite you took. With no phone signal, cow bells ringing in the background, comforting raw food, amazing people and breathtaking views, it was the perfect day.
