Swiss Cafès in England. In the 19th and 20th centuries, Poschiavini had to leave their home town to earn a living abroad. Many came to England to found restaurants, cafès and bakeries, offering high quality food and pastries, often not seen before here. Most were in seaside towns on the south coast which were becoming fashionable holiday resorts. You can see several in this gallery.

I tea-room Svizzeri in Inghilterra. Nel 19. e nel 20. secolo, tanti Poschiavini dovettero lasciare le loro case per guadagnarsi da vivere all’estero. Molti andarono in Inghilterra per fondare ristoranti, tea-room, panetterie, offrendo cibo di alta qualità e prodotti di pasticceria non conosciuti in Inghilterra. La maggioranza si stabilì nel sud dell’Inghilterra, sulla costa, dove stavano fiorendo molti posti di villeggiatura. In questa galleria ne potete vedere diversi.
