In Via Maggio, close to the wonderful Santo Spirito square, lies a little piece of heaven. I discovered the shop by coincidence one day, I was walking by, and I immediately had to step inside.
"Gâteries & Chocolats" it says in French on the card of the shop, and cakes and chocolate are what you find inside. The beautiful experience begins as soon as you open the door. The bell welcomes you with a wonderful sound and you feel like you've entered another world. White and gold are the dominating colours, the place is elegant and cosy, and the delicacies are lined up in the beautiful glass montres. Small and big cakes and lots of chocolate. You can buy one piece or you can choose the small gift bags. You can enjoy your sweets in the shop, or you can bring them home with you. Everything is homemade, and quality, taste and design are just perfect. The person behind everything is the young Florentine pastry chef, Alessio Lai.
