Enjoy our home-made breakfast with a view of San Gimignano
Breakfast is the most important part of the day and we at Podere Sant'Elena know this very well.
This is why every morning we set up a generous buffet of sweet and savory delicacies prepared personally by Gianni in our patisserie, located in the center of San Gimignano.
From 8:30-10, we offer coffee, tea, cappuccino, fruit juices, fragrant croissants, freshly baked cakes, bread, honey, jams, and seasonal fruits. For those who prefer savory, there is bruschetta with extra virgin olive oil, sliced meats and cheeses, and freshly prepared eggs, accompanied by vegetables that nature offers throughout the year.
For generations, our family has had a patisserie, set among the towers in the medieval town center of San Gimignano.
While you get lost in the narrow streets of San Gimignano, take home with you some of Tuscany’s sweetness including ricciarelli (a type of macaroon), cavallucci (pastry made with anise, almonds, candied fruits, coriander, and flour), and panforte (a sort of fruitcake).
Breakfast with real Tuscan and international flavors with a magnificent view of the beautiful towers of San Gimignano.
Fresh, local, and natural products.
Our patisserie Armando e Marcella is a sweet corner of paradise in San Gimignano. Every day Gianni prepares many sweet and savory delicacies, which originate from both traditional Tuscan sweets and his enthusiasm and creativity.
Enjoy tasting our chocolates with such original and sophisticated flavors as hot pepper or balsamic vinegar. Have an Italian espresso or cappuccino together with croissants, cookies, and pastries. Or enjoy a casual brunch with focacce (flat breads) and little pizzas before continuing your visit to the hamlet.
