The best known gastronomic hybrid in the world, the one between breakfast and lunch, which takes on the Savoyard robes, transforming the weekend.
We are talking about brunch, which has won over even the most skeptical Turinese.
The place of the crêpes par excellence in Turin is Adonis Crêperie, which offers a tasty Sunday brunch enriching the menu with pancakes, freshly baked cakes, fruit juices and rivers of American coffee, in one of the most beautiful squares of Turin (largo Saluzzo) that very reminiscent of small Parisian squares.
An interesting novelty in Casa Del Cambio, which recently inaugurated Bar Cavour's Sunday brunch. Every Sunday, from 11 to 15, by appointment only, the most chic brunch in Turin signed Bar Cavour, a real gastronomic ritual with a distinct Anglo-Saxon connotation, therefore without any compromise or drift "local".
So Turin like London and New York, with a selection of dishes very British: scones accompanied by jams and clotted cream, i sausages with baked beans, eggs (in all possible variations, from the scrambled eggs to eggs and soldier, or soft-boiled), Porridge, Greek yogurt with home-made granola. The famous Club Sandwich made in Del Cambio, up to the croque madame, without forgetting the lovers of healthy proposals, who will be satisfied with the avocado toast.
Everything will be accompanied by fruit and vegetable juices, smoothies, a selection of fine teas and American-style coffee. If you want to treat yourself in a special way, order theEgg Royale (Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict) with Sockeye salmon, served with a flute of champagne. Three tasting menus and à la carte dishes are available to customers.

Brunch once a month is a fun and very curious tradition, to do something different. Where is it? At Casa Fedora, (almost always) on the third Sunday of the month, in via Asti 23, it has now become a regular event.
Hours 11-16, buffet service with sweet and savory options to please everyone: fresh seasonal fruit, sweet or savory pancakes, coffee or a selection of teas, cakes, fruit juices. Reservations are recommended because the place is really very small. Follow the Facebook page for updates and news.
Multi-purpose shops, those that contain barber shops, bicycle shops and cafeterias in restaurants are in fashion. In via Cagliari, at number 18D, we find Pai Bakery, the undisputed realm of pancakes, various proposals between sweet and savory for brunch lovers who arrive here, of course, by bicycle. Among the most popular are lemon and poppy seeds.
If you are lovers of salty, don't miss the English Classic Breakfast (bacon, scrambled eggs and toast, at the super price of € 6) or la Veggie with avocado, scrambled eggs, black bean hummus and toasted bread, always for € 6 (or 8.5 King Size)
The mechanic's breakfast, which is a mix between the two previous ones.
The Savory pancakes, with a multitude of fillings, all super tasty, at around € 8 each.
Note interesting on the menu, in the producers section: Pai Bikery is supplied by small farmers and cheese producers in the province of Turin. Short chain, guaranteed taste.

That of Spazio 7 is a very special brunch, a Italian brunch with the flavors of Sunday lunches. It is served in the cafeteria, located on the ground floor of the Via Modane structure. You can find: milk, tea and juices, mixed cereals, savory and sweet croissants, cold cuts and cheeses, fresh fruit and cakes. The menu varies from one Sunday to another, basically you can find the Russian salad, the vitello tonnato and some hot dishes (for example the risotto with saffron rather than the tagliatelle with ragù).
All this is served as a buffet, at a cost of 25 euros, and also includes a choice of scrambled eggs (with salmon, bacon, or spinach).
Let's say it's an atypical and very tasty brunch.
The advice, as always, is to reserve a table so as not to remain dry. Telephone 011 3797626.
