At Platti, coffee is served with a teaspoon of cream, If that spoon was not there, most would not want it. But, at that moment there is and you know you can’t resist it. That little spoon will surprise you in your routine habit, caressing your palate with sweetness and pampering your spirit. Can a single spoon of cream really do all of this? You will say. Yes, because Platti is like that: a caress, without which one could survive equally, clearly, but one is enough to improve your day and raise your mood.
We are faced with another institution in Turin, a historic bar that has seen intellectuals, politicians, poets and industrials alternate with the best Savoy bourgeoisie. To get an idea: Luigi Einaudi, the first president of the Republic, Senator Giovanni Agnelli (the grandfather of the lawyer) and Cesare Pavese.
The keywords are elegance and refinement. The aristocratic interiors are composed of sumptuous crystal chandeliers, a stucco ceiling with golden decorations, a long inlaid wooden bar and large mirrors framed in gold, creating a baroque atmosphere with a sumptuous and regal tone. To all this is added the staff, always fully dressed, ready to fulfill your every desire.
The ideal moment to indulge in one of the many caresses that Platti can offer is definitely breakfast. Famous among the people of Turin, it is certainly one of the tastiest and most refined in the city. Croissants are the real stars as well as all their own leavened products. Equally inviting are the mignon baked by the master Luciano Stillitano. A sublime delicacy for the eye and for the palate contained in a small vice to be enjoyed in an atmosphere reminiscent of past times.
The offer, however, does not stop there because Platti is a great place for an aperitif, a lunch and recently even for a dinner. From the excellence of the Piedmontese territory, it offers tradition or more refined dishes for those who are more daring.
In short, every moment of the day is good to enjoy a sweet or savory break in perfect Savoy style. This historic café will take you back to another era That you will never want to leave!
