This historic café, established back in 1912, is set at the very heart of Bergamo. Beside being a fine bar, Nazionale Caféoffers up one of the best brunches in the city, featuring home-made pancakes, sweet and salty bagels and more Italian-style tramezzini, fresh fruit and croissants. Of course, all this is best accompanied with a foamy cappuccino.

Il Fornaio

This characteristic panetteria in Bergamo Alta is excellent for a rich brunch or breakfast. Il Fornaio bakes several kinds of creative and colorful pizzas, which customers can choose to eat in or take out. Alongside pizza and snacks like polenta bites and focacce, Il Fornaio also offers a choice of treats such as baci di dama; ball-shaped cookies filled with a chocolate cream.

This cafeteria in Bergamo Bassa is also a coffee house, which means customers can buy their coffee to take out as well as sit in. La Chicca gives its customers a wide choice of coffee types on the menu and it’s famous for its exceptional cappuccino. Customers will know they’re approaching La Chicca, simply because of the aromas of those fresh beans wafting through the air.
