SCHIPA | patisserie & bakery
Those with a sweet tooth will find paradise here, at this family ran bakery which is in the business since generations.
They make the creamiest croissants in the morning, delicious semi-iced cakes, tens of different bisquits and more and more treats, last by not least the infamous tette di monaca – “nun’s boobs”-… for what turns to be an increadible journey into Salento’s sweetest sides.
STELLA | pralines & treats
Since 1881 Stella Dolciumi has been producing high quality artisanal sweets based on almonds.
Their tracks are a steady presence at every popular festivals in Salento from very back in the day, with generations of Salentino people having indulged in their signature Copeta – a tablet of rosted almonds, pistachio, hazelnut held together by a hot caramel veil -.
The Stella Sisters have now evolved the concept with new modern stores in Lecce, otranto ancod Martano where to find nicely packaged pralines, treats of all kind, and of course Copeta! Would you want to bring back home a slice of sweet Salento, there you go!
BALDO | natural gelato
My favorite gelato parlour in town, and in my opinion one of the fews making it truly natural.
Located at a narrow street nearby the church of Santa Croce, their 18 flavors bring you on a delightful journey through authentic gelato:
Dark chocolate to creams to fresh fruit sorbets, you wil want to return here to have more. And more. And more…
