One reason why I love living in Italy? I can have sweets every day... for breakfast. Here in Rome, most locals start the day with coffee and a cornetto, Italy's answer to France's croissant.
Want to taste the best of Rome's cornetti? Then choose your cafe carefully. Especially in the center, many spots simply microwave frozen pastries, dusting them with powdered sugar to make them look homemade. For a real taste of a melt-in-your-mouth Italian cornetto, make sure you go to a bakery or cafe that makes their pastries fresh every morning, like these 5 great spots for cornetti in Rome.
