I’ve always enjoyed mornings. The familiar ritual of starting a day is a comforting constant even when the hours ahead are an unexpected melange of bustle, urgency, and strife. There is a fragile peace slowly shattered as the collective yawn of the city gradually rouses us back to activity. No, it is not always easy to wake up, but then, it would seem ever the more important to indulge in the embrace of its daily repetition.
Whilst I could endlessly wax poetic about enjoying cornetti and espressi at seaside resorts, train stations or city bars throughout Italy, I cannot stress enough how lovely the addition of Bongusto has been to my Lausanne routine. Since opening in late 2020 Bongusto has steadily expanded their assortment and prides themselves on their homemade selection. Therefore, if you long wistfully for a little piece of Italia, then Bongusto should definitely be part of your routine.
