You can enjoy a light snack, sandwich or cappuccino. Seating is available both indoors and outside. Prices are cheaper if you eat inside; however, the opportunity to watch such a parade of humanity is definitely worth the higher price.
Chocolate seems to be the specialty of the house here, with fresh pastries with smooth chocolate filling, tiny squares of bitter-sweet chocolate wrapped in colored foil, rectangular butter cookies with a thin layer of chocolate icing and a dusting of powdered sugar. A young German couple at the next table treated their toddler to a cup of thick hot cocolate with a huge portion of whipped cream on top.
A variety of fresh pannini (small sandwiches)was available--mostly salami, formaggio (cheeses), bruchetta and crostini. We (my husband and I) chose a crusty bread topped with cheeses, artichokes and olives, dressed with a simple olive oil--very tasty. Of course, the usual coffee, espresso, etc. were available, but we shared a half litre of local wine and watched the world go by. Of course, a small bit of chocolate (the ones wrapped in blue foil) was necessary to restore our energy.
A lovely place for a light lunch, a bit pricey--but definitely worth the cost. NOTE--Rivoire is closed on Monday.
