Who doesn't enjoy an occasional second breakfast? In Positano in the off-season the Bar Internazionale is the (almost only) place to be if you want to stop for a cornetto and coffee and maybe a chat. Let's go in and see what they have today...
Strangely for 9am it's almost empty..Maybe we're early, or too late? No matter, let's grab a corner table and and made ourselves comfortable.
There are a few old photographs on the wall that everyone loves looking at. They show the old proprietor of the bar standing at the wall outside with his megaphone, announcing to the townsfolk what the bar had to offer.
I love the fact that the megaphone is still there, hanging above the bar.
In the morning there is a selection of pastries, donuts, cookies and cakes, typical Italian breakfast fare. But around midday the stock changes to slices of pizza, sandwiches, stuffed rolls and flatbreads, all with a selection of fillings and toppings. On Sundays there are trays of biscottini, tiny little pastries and cookies on trays of varying sizes that are bought and taken to Sunday Lunch, often at a relatives house.
Near the till there is a fantastic selection of sweets and chocolates that look as if they have just arrived from the last century. I often end up buying them just to have the pretty box in my bag!
And while there is nobody here, let me show you the tables. All the tables in the bar have hand painted pictures of Positano. This map is everybody's favourite.
If you'll excuse me my second breakfast is waiting at my table, are you going to have something too?
