When the time has come to leave your home and get to work or anywhere else you have to be, there is a compulsory stop on the way, somewhere with good coffee and something sweet to eat! Well, there are many of these places on the island but the best fresh breads and pastries can be found at Dangelini’s.
For the second consecutive year, the café located on Front Street, in Hamilton, right next to the ferry terminal, was voted top in the fresh breads and pastries category in the Best of Bermuda Awards by The Bermudian. If there is nothing better than a fresh pastry with a side of coffee to start your day, then you will experience the best day ever after stopping by Dangelini’s!
The great location of the café also means that many of the visitors coming on the island by ferry and docking in Hamilton get to taste the best fresh breads and pastries at Dangelini’s before anything else. That is probably the best selling point for Bermuda as well as for Hamilton because the café share a space with the Hamilton Visitor’s Information Centre. You couldn’t possibly wish for a better first coffee and pastries to start your day visiting the capital of Bermuda.
It is then a regular place to see local business people on their way to work and tourists on their way to a tour of the city. At Dangelini’s, the atmosphere is relaxed, the service is professional, the pastries are delicious and the coffee is just perfect. Many tourists are surprised of the fact that this can match and even surpassed the coffee they are used to in their favourite local coffee shop. Coffee lovers will not need to experience coffee withdrawals while in Bermuda!
The name of the place is a contraction of the three owners names, husband and wife Daniele and Jessica and their associate Shalini who have done a great job and managed to take the title of best fresh breads and pastries in Bermuda for two years in only two years of existence!
