After much too short of a time in Cinque Terra, we were sad to be leaving. Before taking off, we stopped at a small bakery shop for some morning pastries:
Chocolate, creme, apricot
Decent, but a overwhelming with the proportions of the already strongly flavored filling to the crust. You also have to be careful on the inhale eating this. Right when I was about to take a bite, I inhaled a blast of powered sugar and ended up with a 5-minute coughing fit.
Fig & Walnut Pastry
Pastry itself a little like shortbread in texture: with that crumbly cooki'ish texture. The fig filling was nice was small bits of walnut. I was rather surprised by the portions; I could have dealt with the sweetness of this, just not in such a large size.
Not sure why we opted for a plain focaccia piece, perhaps to offset the sweet breakfast pastries, but it turned out to be our favorite of the bunch. A nice crunch, a touch oily, but nice.
