Bar Pasticceria F.lli Ballarin, Cannaregio 5794 (Rialto – Strada Nuova)

Located just outside of Rialto to the Strada Nuova, it is a pretty well-stocked bakery, which occurs in the traditional way, with a smiling and friendly service. The pastries quality is excellent, the cappuccino – although too much warm – quite good and plentiful. Prices too expensive (€ 2,80 cappuccino with pastry), even if is nice the quality and the position. It is open on Sundays and that’s a plus in the desert of Venice holidays.
Rating: COSTLY

Situata nei presi di Rialto verso la Strada nuova è una pasticceria abbastanza ben fornita, che si presenta in modo tradizionale, con un servizio sorridente e cordiale. La qualità delle paste è ottima, il cappuccino – seppur un po’ tiepido – è discreto e abbondante. I prezzi sono decisamente sproporzionati (€ 2,80 cappuccino con pasta)  anche in rapporto alla buona qualità e alla posizione. È aperta alla domenica e questo è un punto a favore nel deserto veneziano dei giorni festivi.
Giudizio: COSTOSO

  1. You can’t beat this stand up cafe! They make the pastries 2 doors down from the cafe in a small bakery. My cousin lives above the bakery and the bakers start at 3-4 am. The wonderful smells drift up to her bedroom by 5 am. Heaven! Then it is fun to sit in the window and look down at the trays of baked goods being carried down the street to Cafe Ballerin. The locals all stop in this cafe for their morning cafe.

    • Ballarin serves exceptional pastries. Their coffee is good and staff are friendly and efficient. Compared with the price of coffee in Greece – up to €5 for (usually poor quality) cappuccino they are very reasonably priced!
      Breakfast paradise in Canareggio.
