We really are creatures of habit, as well as our daily pranzo at H2NO we've taken to having our breakfast at El Cid ,a small cafe overlooking Pesaro's famous Sfera Grande* (above)at Piazza della Liberta. Its a pleasant little spot and the service is friendly and its fun watching the world go by: families on their way to the beach, old folks walking their equally elderly dogs, backpackers using it as a resting place or people just sitting listening to the surf.
And we've also made a habit of enjoying our pre-opera aperitivo there before a leisurely stroll into Centro and a performance at lovely old Teatro Rossini. Of course an aperitivo here is not just a drink, its a mini-meal. Though there are lots of things alcoholic available my preference is for Crodino, a non-booze herbal infusion that is refreshing and I might add addictive.
The price of your drink includes a nice selection of snacks - salty mostly... hmmm method to madness - which tides you over very nicely until dinner after the performance.
