Among pastel colors and stuccos seemingly made in a sac-à-poche, Caffè Platti’s interior architecture competes with the confectionery art: each pastry is made by Luciano Stillitano, standard bearer of the "pastry mignon" of Turin tradition, awarded by the "Accademia Italiana della Cucina": fresh sweet, dried pastry, as well as pretzels are tiny, highly refined, are also available on the online catalog.
Proximity to Einaudi publishing house and Massimo D'Azeglio high school has favored the attendance of culturally renowned personalities, such as Luigi Einaudi, Giulio Einaudi, Leone and Natalia Ginzburg, Cesare Pavese, just to name a few. Platti still continues to preserve this same cultural tradition through multiple initiatives. On 1 November 1897, some students from that high school sitting on a bench besides the newstand right in front of Platti decided to create "Juventus football club".

Amog the moments to indulge in a pampering from Platti, breakfast time is definitely one of the tastiest and most refined in the city, with masterful home-made croissants that melt in your mouth, a sheer delicacy in an atmosphere of other times.
Platti also offers aperitifs accompanied by delicious canapés as well as excellent lunches and dinners, even in reserved rooms, a special vocation for the culinary excellence of Piedmontese tradition.

Coffee is usually accompanied by a teaspoon of whipped cream. An "Astuccio delle Meraviglie" is served at the table: a small elegant box containing three ad hoc biscuits in different color and shape (square, circle, triangle), as well as a cartouche bearing aphorisms on coffee and pastries, famously attributed to a past distinguished client, presumably inspired by Platti ambience.
