Smile and a coffee

I have a a number of posts I would like to do, but they are a bit long and involved and I'm short on time for the next couple of days. I thought I would put this up as I take a coffee break. I love the decorations that most decent Italian bars go to the trouble of making for that little extra something that makes an ordinary cappuccino extraordinary. I enjoy my cappuccino all the more. This little bar, Cafe Smile, (I love the way Italians like to throw an English word in randomly sometimes in naming bars, stores, clubs etc, whether it makes complete sense or not) is in Villar Perosa, the next vilage down that we stop in some times when we are out and about. Fabrizio went to school with the woman that owns the bar and we sometimes stop in for a chat. I loved the coffee shaped sugars and the brilliant yellow table. It put a smile on my face. Hope it will do so for you too.
Ciao Belli

I know the feeling... both of having lots of posts you want to get to and of stopping into a coffee bar in Italy. The former is a bit stress-producing and the latter is... bliss. :-) You always make me wish I were there...

Ann, maybe someday you'll get to visit on a side trip from the UK!
AV, You smiling makes me smile.

Those are very cute sugar packets! I know that if I saw these at the bar we usually frequent, I'd be a-smilin' cause a few of those packets would end up in my purse. Just to bring a bit of that good feeling back home. ;-)

haha..I was going to say what Rowena said. How do they make those designs on the cappaccino? I'd like to try it.
