A Foggy Morning in Positano
The next morning in we awoke to a heavy fog that encapsulated the upper parts of the village.
It gave the scenery an eerie feeling – the perfectly “gloomy” vibe that makes virtually ever indoor space feel cozier. Another bonus: coffee tastes better on overcast mornings (Seattle – case in point).
After a slow stumble down the steps from our AirBnB, we sauntered down the main street looking for a decent breakfast. We passed a handful of too-fancy-for-breakfast spots eventually finding Casa E Bottega (literally translates to “Home and Shop” in case you were curious) – a charming cafe and mini-store that checked all the hipster/millennial/environmentalist/traveler boxes of my dreams.
As if the vibe of this place wasn’t magical enough, the first thing on the menu was Eggs in Purgatory – a drool-worthy poached egg and tomato sauce dish my dad makes regularly at home. There were certainly other tempting options (several of them veg-friendly, mind you) but I couldn’t stray from the classics.
After carb-ing and caffeinat-ing, we perused the goods at Casa E Bottega, then continued our saunter around a loop that follows the perimeter of town. I’ve added some glimpses of the loop itself below, as well as some pictures I took of the effortless beauty we encountered.
