With your back to the fountain, stick to the small original shop on the right. To the left was his apprentice. Flakey, creamy, delicious. Great things come out of small kitchens.

Great place for a good coffee, traditional bougatsa desert, and people watching, facing the 1600AD Morosini venetian fountain. Super fast and friendly service, open late. (The toilet though, is embarrassing, especially considering what a money-machine the place is :)
