Here, coffee is reserved for breakfast, after meals and for breaks during the day. It should be drunk short, dense and creamy: espresso or caffè liscio. A little cup of coffee is always an opportunity to take a break, a treat for your palate and your mood. Here in Ascona-Locarno we prefer to drink our coffee at a table in a lakeside bar, in the shade of the palm trees, with the warmth of the sun's rays playing between the leaves, in complete relaxation.
Thanks to its close links with Italian culture, there’s a huge range of different types of coffee available on the shores of Lake Maggiore. Get creative and try something new! Share a picture of your favourite coffee with us on social media using the hashtag #myasconalocarno.
