It's funny, but I would also find it embarrassing to order a caffelatte in a Italian coffee shop :) I wonder why it's that... I *still* have it every day for breakfast at home!

Simona Carini

I am not sure I have the answer, but I have some ideas: you go to the coffee shop to get something different from what you usually get at home, so you get a cappuccino; you can drink a cappuccino by itself, but a caffelatte really needs something (biscotti, pane e marmellata, fette biscottate); caffelatte ties us to our childhood and it's a private relationship. I think that a mix of these facts are at play here.
