Andrea Zanin (Venice)
Unfortunately, ever since we arrived in Venice, our meals have mostly been very touristy and nothing to write home about (literally). That's why it was so great when we discovered Andrea Zanin. I have to give it to my sister - she always has an eye for spotting good food. She randomly saw someone carrying a bag with what looked like desserts (branded Andrea Zanin), and we somehow managed to find this little cafe on our way to Rialto Bridge. It reminded me very much of patisseries in Paris but like many Italian cafes, you can simply grab an espresso at the counter and select from a variety of pastries/desserts. We tried a few different things such as a fruit mousse and passion fruit tart and they were all delicious. This place is definitely a great place to stop by for some afternoon snack/coffee after a tiring day of walking around Venice!
