We had a breakfast sandwich daily at Chef Express in the Termini and aside from one with unknown meat inside, they were all delicious, not expensive, and filling.

Great place to grab refreshments/espresso, and snacks prior to long train ride, and right by the platform in termini. Actually can handle the business that comes in, which is a novelty in Rome, as most don't. Easy and done.

We went here for a quick coffee before hitting the town. Coffee wasn't bad, but service was typical for Italians... First person collects order, second makes them. Sounds fair.

A buffet café in the Termini station serving excellent 'Italian' coffee, paninis, salads, hot food etc. all at very reasonable prices. A good refreshing stop off either before or after the bustle of Rome's transport systems

Chef's Express is located in Termini Station. Go inside and start walking towards the back It is cafeteria style but you can get anything you want here. The pasta station cooks pasta to order and you have a choice of toppings. We ordered a plate of fresh cooked spinach and it was some of the best we've ever tasted.

22 euros, or $29 dollars... gets you an great burger, a good size salad, a beer and a glass or wine. Hey look at those pictures... it was like standing next to the guy cooking it personally. And I was... it's a cafeteria style place. Multiple things to point at and choose... limited English but hey we are in Italy.... More

I have never come across a worst organised snack bar with extremely rude staff who shout at you in Italian and most disgusting cold food (even though you asked for it to be hot)!
