Caffé Tubino

Caffé Tubino is an institution in Verona. It is the paradise of coffees, hot chocolates, teas, pastries, a real delight! It's all concentrated in just a few square meters where everything is stuffed (and I mean it). 
There are only a few marble tables and many shelves that go up to the arched ceiling. The shelves are full of tea boxes, coffee cans, chocolates, marmalades, tea pots, cups and saucers, plus various objects for sale. 
Yesterday I took my mid morning coffee here, standing at the bar and trying to decide which one of the lovely, tiny chocolates displayed on a glass tray I would pick up...

Lovely caffe.
I'd like to have a coffee there.

Here in funabashi, almost coffee shops are chain shop.

"È una giornata perfetta
accendo la prima sigaretta
camicia a quadrettino
modello tabacchino
pettine al taschino
bacio un caffè Tubino
La vita è un ricciolo leggero..."

(Una giornata perfetta, Vinicio Capossela)
