Pasticceria Pirona

  Largo Barriera Vecchia 12      +39 040 636046     more than a year ago
A visit to the famed Pirona café is a must for any literary connoisseurs or those who've come to Trieste for the full James Joyce experience. Opened around the turn of the 20th century by Alberto Pirona, Joyce was a frequent visitor here during his decade spent in the city, especially from 1910-12 when he lived just down the street. Historical novelty aside, they still turn out some fine pastries and other sweets, and also stock imported English jam, French tea and countless varieties of chocolate. Most locals pop in for a quick espresso and cream filled puff pastry on the way to or from work.
