Spending a day rambling around Bergamo, fancy a nice tea break? This is an ideal place to stop for coffee or tea. It's an historical location, very nice atmosphere, and tea room, kind staff, and a choice of cakes that pleases the heart, and those blessed with a sweet tooth. The Donizetti chocolates are really delicious.

Very well located and cozy. Balzer makes an excellent ice cream, and it's very good with candies and coffees.

We stopped here for lunch while visiting Città Bassa in Bergamo. They have outdoor seating in the Summer and we had a delightful light lunch outside. We ordered panini sandwiches, which were delicious. We got good food and good service. Definitely recommend this place.

Balzer is a classic palace of dolce with a cool marble table interior and pleasant tables on a flower enclosed terrace outside. The dolce are very good and the ambience is just right.

A very elegant cafe with a fantastic range of cakes .all too calorific for us but we did manage an ice-cream sat in elegant surroundings and friendly service. It was very popular around lunch time so the elegant Italian office workers must know something

We had spent the day in Lovere on Lake Iseo and on our return to Bergamo decided that an ice cream sat in the sunshine would be a lovely way to end the day. We went to Bazlers and found a table in the sunshine . We decided on cups of ice cream and my friend chose two flavours- chocolate... More

This is a hidden haven right in the heart of Sentierone Street in Bergamo. With a charming selection of cocktails and small craft beer selection along with some choice wines, this meets all drinkers appetites. Nice vibe and energy.
