A "must to do" in town

Caffè Pedrocchi is an historical place in town, so you can't miss it. Go inside and taste a Pedrocchino, but be careful! Do not sit down! It could be expensive ;)

Typical and historical place to take your breakfast or lunch, or just a coffee and enjoy the great architecture of one of the most beautiful places in the centre of Padova.

In the best tradition of European café, Culture and History are all around. In the quiet atmosphere of elegance courtesy and respect, there are newspaper readers, intellectuals, students, chess players.

A caffe with history. Go, read the historical references on site and enjoy a great cafe. Attached is a museum dedicated to The Risorgimento revolution.

The meal was okay, the service was mediocre, although the cafe was busy. If you are there, check it out, have a cup of coffee or a snack, but don't bother to go out of your way to get there.

It's a nice atmosphere. Quiet and nice. We ordered their specialty coffee. A nice combination of mint and coffee, but too sweet for my taste buds.

This is in all the guidebooks, and historically, it's important, but I would try and avoid spending much money there. It's kind of expensive and a bit snooty, and with so many other nice places to go, why bother.

This was our first stop when coming into Padua. A wonderfully decorated and historic café with impeccable service. We stopped for a few drinks and nibbles before heading off to walk around the city. It has a relaxed atmosphere and the waiters were very attentive despite being extremely busy. Fantastic for people watching!
