Bar Pasticceria Cucciolo Florence – Have snacks with locals

Snacks

"Bar Pasticceria Cucciolo" is the solution to the problem "where do I get good snacks in the centre of Florence?" Just try their bomboloni. you're welcome.

Often, when I decide to spend my Saturday afternoon walking around the city centre, I get hungry at a certain point. As you can probably imagine, it is not so easy to find something cheap (and very good) to eat in the centre of Florence. There are many snack bars displaying tons of sliced pizza and ice cream in their windows, but those are just tourist-oriented shops and, if you decide to have your snack there, you will probably end up eating very mediocre food while paying a lot for it.

If you're thinking that a better solution would be to not snack at all, well, you are probably right, but that's not the way people think in the country of good food. The solution I can offer to this dilemma is to step into Cucciolo's, a pastry shop situated in the very centre. There, they offer a broad selection of sweet and salty pastry, but what I really, really recommend is to pick their "bomboloni". A bombolone (or krapfen, as they call it in Germany and some parts of Italy) is a small donut covered with sugar and filled with jam, chocolate or custard (I definitely recommend custard) and at Cucciolo's you can have one for € 1 – a very good price-quality ratio, especially considering its location. If one is not enough, they are so cheap you can have more without regrets. Just be careful and don't have too many, since they are not only delicious, but also very heavy.
