"How do order a coffee, the Italian way" Padova Local Custom Tip by ScarletCake
Padova Local Customs: 54 reviews and 86 photos
Ahh, I love my adopted country, the land of brilliant coffee. I haven't had a bad one yet (even the vending machine coffee gets a thumbs-up!). While I do recommend a leisurely visit to Caffe Pedrocchi (and to experience the famous Peddrochino), there is a custom or two to follow if you want the everyday Italian coffee experience:
1. Drink at the bar. You stand, have a chat and a pastry, drink your coffee, and go.
2. Don't order a milky coffee after lunch. Caffe latte and cappuccino are morning drinks only. Trust me, as a former cappuccino lover, the macchiato will take you places you have never been before.
Find a nice little bar, and go there every day while you're staying in Padova. Getting to know the staff is a great part of the experience.
