Malvin’s breakfast is becoming legendary, and rightly so, it’s quite something.  Every day he’s up at dawn baking. The menu varies from day to day. Always made from scratch (breads, tarts, yogurts, butter and jams)- or small production local (honeys, cheeses, prosciutto, salami for example) grown right here (fruit and salads from the garden) Whole food only.  Nothing processed.

Teas are imported from England (Darjeeling, Earl Grey, Assam, English Breakfast, Lapsang…) Italians aren’t so into their teas as we Brits and so we’re going for our favourite supplier from home.

Coffee is 100% Arabica, roasted by hand at L’OSCURO in Sinalunga, a few km away.  Mexico, Honduras, San Domingo… whatever’s good on the day. Espresso, Cappuccino, Americano – however you like it – made on a full sized bar machine.

As fresh as possible if not home made or home grown; as local as possible – and always as good as possible !

WORD OF MOUTH amazing breakfast every day, leisurely breakfast, best brownies I have ever eaten, the best cappuccino, gourmet,ingredients from their own garden
