The Cafeteria

The museum also offers a cafeteria service in his historical venue. A small room is located on the low ground and two suggestive rooms are on the first floor.

Here you can taste espresso coffee, hot chocolate and drinks, cold drinks, orange juice and frappè and, of course, delicious local specialty.

One of the most known is the “Bicerin”, non-alcoholic drink born in the early XIX century in Turin, made with hot chocolate, coffee and cream.

It is also possible to have a light lunch or a break with our delicious Panini, Piadine and pizza.


Inside the cafeteria you can also buy some typical Piedmontese sweets like hazelnut cakes, “baci di dama” and “meliga” biscuits, and the famous “gianduiotti”, a chocolate candy.
The Piedmont is also well known for his vineyards. The cafeteria offers a selection of typical Piedmontese wines like Barolo, Barbera, Grignolino e Barbaresco, distinguishing for their perfume and taste.
