Usually Italians don’t eat much in the morning

Many do not eat anything at home and stop at a cafe on the way to work. Traditionally Italians stand at the counter and they have a coffee or a cappuccino and a pastry!!!.

Breakfast italian style

Why do Italians prefer to have breakfast at a café?

First of all it is very cheap (2 euros) and quick (less than 5 minutes and you are done!!), also the bartenders are usually smiling, friendly and especially very fast: the Italians hate waiting. If people are regular customers they chat with the bartender and also with the other regulars, This creates a pleasant and cheerful atmosphere: the ideal way to start your working day!!!
