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.....

Oh man, I love my coffee, and this place served the best I tasted during a four day stay in Napoli. Just don't look for seating - it's one of those standing room only places with the professional baristas and, when I went, a friendly lady at the register with whom I practiced my Italian. Thank you, trip advisor reviewers,... More

Very busy bustling coffee house with plenty of noisy locals jostling ( in good mannered way) for great coffee at very low price (as you have to stand at the bar!)

The Caffe Mexico at the Piazza Dante is small but serves exceptional espresso. This café is probably the main one which is distributing the Neapolitan brand Passalacqua, a known and valued local coffee roaster. The main attraction in this café is the five (!) lever espresso machine. It is just amazing what the barista extract for you with this marvelous... More

If you love coffee like I do, this is THE PLACE! It is all about coffee, no tables, no variety of pastries, just great coffee. I bought some to take home with me. I should have gotten more ...
