Cristalli di Zucchero Pasticceria

I've walked past this shop after working out by Circo Massimo. I finally went in one day. Why did I do such a thing to myself? It makes no sense to work out then buy pastries. ha

This is their second shop and opened about six months ago. The first shop is in Monteverde on Via di Val Tellina.

This tiny place is deadly. The woman working behind the counter was so nice and insisted that I try some sorbetto. I didn't want to be rude so I said yes. We proceeded to have a half hour conversation in Italian.

Their website is being update, but the Circo Massimo store is located on Via di San Teodoro.

On my way home from the doctor's last week I stopped by. It was lunch time and several people were inside buying sandwiches. Those looked good as well.

These pastries are the bomb. I know should try another kind but you know how I get fixated on things. The combination of apples, cinnamon and puffy pastry is sooooo good.


I had one of the cherry ones. Very good.


So pretty.

stekkino - sorry. ha Thanks for stopping by.

bwbt - Okay I'm no so sure it's worse than waterboarding but I understand what you are saying. :)

jen - so bad it's good.

gil - There are almost too pretty to eat. Notice the world almost.

david - I don't belong to a gym. I go to the park. I know there are gyms here and I'm pretty sure there are spinning classes. Most of the gyms here are low key. They are not open 24/7, and I doubt the ones not in a hotel are opened at 6:00 or 5: 30 like the gyms in L.A. My friend E. who knows Robby might have more info. He used to work or work out at a gym.
