Review: 2 Periodico Cafe

Sunday my friend Yasmin came over to meet Peanut for the first time and go for a walk around with me. We headed off to Piazza Bologna as there was supposed to be a Christmas market there but when we arrived we couldnt find it! So instead we had a nice walk around and explored the area for a while which was nice as we both hadnt been there before.

After a while Yasmin asked if i wanted to go to a nice cafe she had discovered near the Cavour metro stop and i agreed. The place (2 Periodico cafe) was a short walk from the metro and i noticed immediately the nice comfy chairs and sofa in the entrance area.  wpid-IMG_20131216_160728.jpg

Entering inside i found a table laden with freshly baked brownies, carrot cake and muffins! The place was quite busy as people were enjoying the buffet lunch which started from 12 euros each and also looked really nice. I could see chocolate cake, rice, salmon, pasta and veggies available and alot of people seemed to be enjoying it.

Following Yasmin into the back of the cafe we walked into a large room with lots of little tables, more sofa’s and comfy arm chairs! The place was very arty and funky with strange paintings on the walls and ceiling. There were also posters, a huge multi coloured elephant on a ball and a giant pink light bulb in one corner. Also there was a DJ like man on a little platform playing music which was quite nice 🙂 (Apparently he’s not Always there or live music so they do have quiet times).

The place really seemed cosy and it almost felt like it could be a place in London somewhere instead of the heart of Roma! I did also notice there were quite a few expats in the place soaking up the atmopshere and food.

The waitress spoke English and we ordered our food, mine being a blueberry muffin and a freshly squeezed oranged juice. My friend Yasmin ordered herself a chocolate brown and a cappuccino as we relaxed back on a big green sofa.

It was really nice to sit and have a chat as i looked around the place and thought how nice it was and weird! Yasmin told me that one time she had come before there had been a bath tub on the stage and she had had her photo taken in it LOL!

When our food arrived i found the muffin still warm and fresh! yum and the orange juice was slightly bitter but delicious! Apparently they do cookies and other baked goods as well which i want to check out next time.

Yasmin treated me to my Muffin and orange juice so i didnt see how much it cost but she did tell me when she bought a chocolate brownie and a muffin from there before it cost around 6 euros.

I would go there again as i really enjoyed the arty/funky feel to the place and the muffin i had was Worth the trip. It did look like a very hip and popular place if anyone likes that kind of thing and want to go and try the place out then i would recommend it.
