Caffe Mexico was recommend in lonely planet and we weren't disappointed. Pay at the cashier then take your receipt to the bar, place a 10cent tip on it and wait. You're served a glass of cold soda water (in a warm glass) with the espresso. You drink the soda water first (to clean the pallet) and then enjoy a great... More

This place is incredible. I've only recently started to drink coffee and I've been quite underwhelmed by the rubbish served in many places. However, Caffe Mexico in Piazza Dante has been said to produce the greatest coffee in the world. That's a bold statement but having visited everyday for the four days I was in Naples, I'm obviously now in... More

This is right outside the Dante metro stop. You walk in and pay at the cashier in front then you go up to the bar and place your receipt with a .10 or .20 tip and you will have a great strong espresso or cafe within a few seconds. One of the better espressos I had in Napoli.

My husband is a massive coffee fan and loved the caffe harem here. Go in and pay you will be given a ticket. Put this in the bar along with a small tip if 10 or 20 cent and your coffee will be served with a glass of water.

Even though we're out of townies, we felt very welcome in this cafe stop-off. As others have said, you select and pay for your type of coffee at the till. You get a raffle-type ticket which you put on the barista's bar. Not knowing the protocol, we just put our ticket down. But the barista eventually let us know by... More

There are lots of great coffee bars in Napoli but Caffe Mexico is simply better than the others. The STRONGEST caffe caldo in town with fresh Arabica beans pressed the old fashioned way. 95 cents later, weary travelers are weary no more.

If wandering Naples is your thing - then a stop into this shop for a quick espresso must be a part of it. Near the Archeological museum and across from Dante's square, this little cafe is great any time of day. Pay the cashier to the right of the entrance for your drink then take your ticket to the counter.... More

Excellent little coffee shop with lots of character. Very little English spoken but that adds to the authentic experience. Place order with the lady inside the door and take your ticket to the coffee bar. Seemed that the 'done thing' was to put your 10 cent change (espresso was 90 cents) on the ticket as a tip. Not a place... More

.95 cents a shot. In, out, leave with a smile on your face. We went 3 times in 3 days. Nothing more needs to be said but apparently I have to write 100 characters for this review to be valid.....
