Roma Day 2: Cristalli di Zucchero

Cristalli di Zucchero is a pasticceria (pastry shop) in Roma. I was lead here again by Jady and found it to be completely fantastic. I was literally a kid in a candy store. I picked 3 bite sized pastries, one dome mousse thingy, and all the flavors of macarons.

At the time when I was ordering, it was so packed that I couldn’t even get to the cashier. Because of this, I didn’t notice that they serve coffee and also small sandwiches.

The storefront itself is quite small, about 20 people were in the main area and I was getting claustrophobic. BACK OFF MEEEEEE MOVEEEEE AWAYYY! It didnt help matters that the rain had just started coming down and now even more people were trying to get in. The narrow store has pastries on one side, a bench on the other for customers to quickly eat and the sandwiches on the furthest side from the entrance.

After the crowd dissipated I noticed the sandwich case and just had to get a croissant Jady was mentioning. They have various meats and cheeses in each one. I ended up choosing the one with prosciutto and brie cheese. Must be really bad for you because it was really delicious.

I didnt get a chance to head there today so I’ll definitely need to go before breakfast tomorrow before I leave for Florence.
