Verona is a perfect place to experience the delightfully simple Italian breakfast. There’s no better reason to get out of bed in the morning than to have a shot of strong coffee with steamed milk and something sweet and buttery, like a warm croissant (called brioche in these parts) or a cream puff. But, as an international city full of crossing cultural currents, there’s plenty more options here for the curious visitor. We’ll show you where to find American-style brunch with eggs, savory sandwiches and other delicious things that are sure to make your morning.

Elk Bakery

Bakery, Cafe, American, Italian, $$$
Add to Plan

This is an Italian joint which takes its inspiration from across the ocean. Here you’ll get a proper brunch menu the way the cafes in Soho do it: bacon, avocado toast, Eggs Benedict and yes, even bagels. They also serve all kinds of all-American baked goods like brownies, banana bread, cookies and apple pie. For homesick Yankees longing for the items from their middle-school bake sales, this might be just the place to go. Lunch and dinner offers other kinds of Americanisms, like the lobster roll.

Cafè La Ciacola

Cafe, Italian, Coffee, Tea , Fast Food
Add to Plan

Here’s a great little cafe for everything from your morning coffee to your after-dinner drink. Stop in for a classic of the bar counter in the Veneto: a tramezzino. Two pieces of crustless white bread stuffed with fillings like tuna, cheese, prosciutto or vegetables, and completed with a swipe of mayonnaise. If you need something to get your day started, a quick bite from La Ciacola can’t be beaten. The place also hosts lovely concerts with local musicians and has a great, friendly vibe.
