If Berlicabarbis in Piedmontese dialect literally means “to lick one’s mustache”, a store that bears this name can only be mean this: delicious delicacies prepared by hand that will excite every moment of your day. Go inside to believe!
Among abandoned houses and old buildings it is impossible not to notice this little candy box in pastel colors with its brilliant showcases and fairy-like dehors that are a clear invitation to enter. Decorated in shabby chic style with cream and red hues, the atmosphere recalls a kind of childish naiveté that invites us to return those children who while the grandmother prepared the desserts, soaked their fingers in the dough to taste.
This is how it feels after trying a slice of the strictly handmade cakes that Berlicabarbis makes every day: more than twenty different variantions recall the flavors and fragrances of traditional pastries. From apple pie, to the tart with ricotta and pear, from the cherry clafoutis, to the delicious Bavarian, cheesecakes and crumbles. A seasonal menu that changes constantly embracing all sorts of taste and variety including a whole series of biscuits and leavened bread for a high quality sweet break.
To accompany all these delicacies you will find a wide selection of herbal teas and infusions from around the world (more than 100) designed to meet every kind of palate ranging from the most traditional aromas to the most unusual tastes.
The coffee list is certainly no less: 15 particular recipes, each with a name in Piedmontese dialect, ironic and fun. So you can find the Balengo (with chocolate, whipped cream, nougat and flakes of dark), Muntagnin (chestnut cream, coffee, whipped cream, marron glacé and bon-bons with violet) or Badola (whipped cream, gianduja cream, Bicerin cream and Piedmontese biscuit).
Torteria Berlicabarbis has all the ingredients for a sweet moment of pure goodness to be enjoyed at any time of the day. When you come back to the office or head home you can say without a doubt that you really did lick your mustache!
