Smiling Cappuccino – Only in Italy

by Erica Berman

cappucino-vigne

Genoa, June 2009: The search for the perfect cappuccino is on. It’s hard to go wrong when drinking any sort of coffee in Italy, but the smiling cappuccino from the Cafe in Piazza delle Vigne, although good, but not the greatest, takes the award for most adorable. On top of the cute factor, the cafe itself is located in a lovely old square in the heart of the medieval center of Genoa, and offers outdoor munching and people watching at their very best. Smiling cappuccinos? Only in Italy!

I have to say that there is a small cafe here in Buenos Aires where they always give me a cup of cafe con leche with a heart …

I really think I need to come your way Candice!
