An excellent modern pub in the Trastevere that also serves a great breakfast and lunch. The drinks are affordable and good, and the interior is very stylish.

Ate there all our breakfasts during our stay in Roma because our bed & breakfast had a convention with this place. There was a lot of pastry choices for european breakfast. However, american breakfast did not offer such a large choice. Overall, it is missing some options other than sweet pastries, and there is a lot of wait to be... More

Great food and coffee, smiling staff, strategic location, unique style and intriguing furniture... what else? -sometimes a bit overcrowded -just in front of a little church (18th century) home of a Spanish Franciscan order -wooden doors instead of tables?!? I love this place!

Trendy spot, well finished, busy for evening drinks, Thought it was a bit expensive for what was given. Staff were friendly, but not exactly prompt service. Stayed around the corner for a week, but only went once.

it's a very nice bar at the centre of trastevere. it has a broad variety of coctails, different kinds of wine and a buffe, from which you can take whatever you want for the price of 3€! very modern and a bit funky decoration. i recommend it 100%!

I stopped over by Baylon Cafe for a lunch break. Although there were enough personnel, it took quite a while before they took my order a fruit juice and the menu. The freshly squeezed orange juice was well prepared but again it took some time before i could order my dishes. I ordered a Tonnarelli Gamberi (pasta with prawn, pistachio... More

Baylon Cafe is a lovely Eclectic respite in Trastevere. While the outdoor seating is obvious, inside there are several different rooms, each with its own ambiance. For a lively cocktail atmosphere, especially after dark, stay up front in the bar area - the Montepulciano is fabulous as is the service. Other rooms include clusters of seating. Midway, the dining area... More

I am very picky with espresso, and always looking to find new places to have a good Italian style breakfast. Decided to try this one as a review from 2012 was suggesting this is the "best cappuccino in trastevere". Won't come here again as: - espresso is average (not burnt at least) - cappuccino looks like a latte - cornetti... More

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
