When I travel I really like sitting in the hotels’ cafés and staying there for ages with my book until I find the energy to get up and walk…to the next café. Everyone has their own hobbies, armchairs are mine.
What I love more in the hotels’ cafés, beside the armchairs, is the atmosphere of lazy idleness and the feeling that you can stay there for hours without anyone pushing you to leave. For reasons I do not understand, people in “normal” cafés spend a lot of energy in moving, looking active, gesticulating and shouting on the phone. For the same reasons I do not understand, inside Ca’puccino people seem to slow down, talk nicely, sip their drink with no hurry…as if they were actually taking some time to relax. So, who cares if the Ca’puccino does not have the hotel attached and the “hotel effect” is only a fake?
I suggest Ca’puccino for aperitivo, together with the drink you usually get a small dish of light savory patisserie or a product from the bakery. Brunch is also possible but it is not with a buffet and for breakfast I feel that the traditional patisserie is a more “locals’ style” choice.
