Caffè Gilli, Firenze. A little piece of heaven on earth.

To my mind, Caffè Gilli has it down pat. Beautiful surroundings, delicious foods, fine baristas serving superb coffee.  What more could you ask for?

The ceiling medallion speaks to the turn-of-the-century (20th, that is) era of its apparent redecoration.

The commemorative over-sized plate marks the Caffè’s 200 year anniversary in 1983.

And the pastries and confections speak for themselves!

The colorful glacée below are decorate with masks for Carnevale.

These glacées tell us springtime is either here, or just around the corner.  It felt like spring in Florence yesterday when I took these photos.

And the fine, professional personnel always put on a nice show of bar-keeping.

It’s pretty close to heaven on earth to me.
