Where Nostalgia Meets Culinary Innovation.

Where Nostalgia Meets Culinary Innovation

Altalena, the concept created by Andrea, is driven by the fusion of different cultures, generations, and tastes. Altalena, which means ‘To move back and forth’ in Italian, reinterprets our concept as a swing between the past and the future, brought to our clients through the delight of classic recipes in this modern world.

Altalena is our tribute to the passage of time. With our delightful croissant in a cone shape, we aim to bring the experience of a unique burst of flavors to the present, reminiscent of our childhood.

At Altalena, we believe that bread is more than just a staple food; it´s an expression of our creativity and our passion for good food. That’s why we use only the freshest and highest quality ingredients in all our dishes. From our sourdough bread with a crispy crust to our rye bread with sunflower seeds and honey, each of our products is a work of art in itself.

Our modern café is designed with a focus on minimalist aesthetics, providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our customers.

We are honored to showcase our work through an extensive array of menu items, such as soups, salads, and sandwiches, all prepared with our homemade bread bases. All of which has been brought to Altalena through our dedicated talent scouting efforts in major cities and bakeries around the world.

“Welcome To Altalena,
Where Art And Food Come Together.”
