Baylon Cafè, Rome

What you get: Italian pastry bar + frothy cappuccinos + yogurt and granola + PASTA CARBONARA (when in Rome!) + salads + all kinds of eggs

In Rome for a long weekend, we discovered Baylon Cafè completely by accident on our way to the Porta Portese flea market. Hoping for a quick coffee, we stepped into a busy modern café with a full Roman pastry bar, cornetti, pasta ciotti, and delicious cream and fruit-filled bomboloni donuts. A perfect bite accompanied by a creamy cappuccino.

We ogled the large main dishes brought out to the tables nearest us. Fresh salads, large bowls of yogurt and fruit, omelettes, and even a pasta carbonara (hardly a brunch dish, but typically Roman!).

The interior is a bit dark with exposed brick arches, wooden tables, modern metallic accents, and colorful modern designs. The sunny sidewalk terrace was adorable but we opted for the cool interior as temperatures in Rome reached 102 that week.

Situated off the tourist-track in charming Trastevere, Baylon is a local hangout and a fine place for a weekend brunch or a beer in the evening.
