Un momento in Caffe Momento - Southampton

Arriving at the Guildhall early on Monday evening, my mum decided we would get something to drink beforehand as opposed to waiting in the hall for just under an hour. Unbeknown to us we came across a small Italian deli we didn't even know existed! As we made our way in, mum loudly greeted the workers with a 'Buonasera!' and, of course (with mum being the way she is), we made three new Italian friends who couldn't do enough for us. A cup of coffee and a white hot chocolate turned into more after we were tempted by the array of cakes presented to us, so we ended up buying food too...And no sense of regret was felt because they were AMAZING. The initial intention to stick to drinks was there though, I promise. 

Caffe Momento is poised alongside Southampton Guildhall and sits directly opposite Southampton Solent's university building which makes for perfect people watching potential. This deli, I'm sure, receives some competition with its neighbouring eatery being Turtle Bay. However due to its cosy ambience and the 5 star reviews it has received, it is clear that the warm welcoming the customers receive paired with the homely setting contribute to Caffe Momento's success.

After researching some of the reviews, it is obvious that this bistro does well not only because of the excellent service customers receive, but also because of the brilliantly cheap prices of some of the meals. If you ever decide to visit, it'll feel like you've just stepped into a café in Italy!
