The real Italian caffe when it’s at its best. Stopped for a breakfast on our way to race MTB up the mountains in the north of the Garda lake. Beautiful view just by the lake.

Stepping off the bus at Toascolano Maderno which had snaked around the beautiful Italian villages from Desenzano, my boyfriend and I couldn't quite believe this would be where we would on holiday for the next 3 days. Tired, hungry and in desperate need for an alcoholic beverage to kick start our holiday we saw Caffe Centrale across the road and headed over.

Firstly the size of the menu is huge! They do everything!! Cocktails, iced coffee, pasta, snacks and the biggest selection of ice cream and desserts I have ever seen. Even better the view is absolutely stunning! Right on the lake with a view of the mountains, hilltop church and boats that come in and out of the harbour. We had planned to have a couple and leave but ended up staying until late as everything was so cheap! Also it doesn't close until 2am and re-opens at 6am so it really caters for all and at all hours. The iced coffee is incredible as is the 'Hugo' cocktail recommended to us by the waiter.

This cafe is an absolute must if in the Maderno area and my boyfriend and I (despite only being in Lake Garda for 3 days) really miss and crave it!! We hope to be back in Lake Garda soon to sit at our table looking out across beautiful Lake Garda and drink prosecco watching the world go by.

Pastries aren't cheap here, but they are fresh and very delicious. Good place for a quick coffee. Right in the main piazza.

Popped in on New Years Eve after a walk along the sea-front for coffee and cannoli. As you would expect for most places in Italy - was very good.
They sell a wide range of Italian pastries - the place was packed with locals (always a good sign) buying boxes of pastries.
The also serve drinks and snacks and home made ice cream.
great little proper Italian cafe and probably great to sit outside on a summer evening

They have a large selection of pastries. Good place to go for a coffee and some tasty treats. I had two small pastries and a cappuccino. Inexpensive and definitely value for money
