Here are our top 5 coffee bars to visit when in Montecatini Terme. At each location you can expect authentic Italian coffee and freshly baked sweet pastries.
1. Pasticceria Pellegrini
Pellegrini pasticceria in Montecatini Terme is in my opinion one of the best in Montecatini Terme. The coffee bar is the perfect blend of grandeur with a modern touch. The polished glass cabinets are filled to the brim with pastries, cakes and sweet treats all freshly baked on site. If you want to porta via or takeaway then you will be presented with your wares wrapped in paper and tied with ribbon, it appears most pasticceria’s offer this service and I recommend trying it at least once. There is something quite special about the whole process. The coffee bar is popular with locals and has been open since 1933.
2. Bar Centrale
If you prefer modern coffee bars then Bar Centrale is the place for you. Bar Centrale is highly stylish with a black and white theme, even the staff are dressed in these colours. Despite being modern and sleek Centrale sticks to the age old tradition of excellent coffee. The coffee bar also has a buzz to it on an evening and is a must visit for aperitivo (aperitif).
3. Il Chicco Di Grano
Italy meets England in this sweet coffee bar and bakery. Order a cappuccino and you will be served a perfect Italian coffee in the finest floral china. Il Chicco di Grano also has a large selection of loose leaf teas served in a traditional Chinese style teapots. The cake cabinet is a feast for the eyes, offering cheesecakes topped with fresh fruit, chocolate Sacher tortes and much more.
4. Pasticceria Sweet
Pasticceria Sweet is located just off Corsa Roma and is a modern stylish coffee bar. The coffee is excellent, the pastries never disappoint and the comfortable outside seating area is a sun trap on a summers morning.
5. Pasticceria Giovannini
Pasticceria Giovannini, has a charm that can not be replicated in modern coffee bars. This coffee bar is now run by the 5th generation of the family and continues to provide excellent service and produce. Although the seating area is small, do not allow this to put you off, you can always drink your coffee like a true local, stood at the bar and watch the baristas at work.
