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

This place looks like a swish little cafe; good cocktail menu, the chefs look like they know what they're doing and they were playing good music. The fatal flaw of this place is that (despite having plenty of waiters) nobody is being served. I work as a waitress too, so I am particularly forgiving when it comes to waiters under... More

The Baylon Cafe was our first lunch in Rome, and it was delightful sitting outside. The food choices range from veggie food to full meat fare, and everything was very tasty. We came back later in the week for breakfast, which was equally delicious. The staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant seemed to get a lot of colorful neighborhood... More

This isn't your traditional stuffy old style European cafe. It is a clean modern arty looking place. It was recommended to us by a local who often meets people there for breakfast. When we turned up at 10am it was full of local Italians catching up for Saturday brunch. It had a small blackboard menu with some unusual menu choices... More

Great start to the day, loved coming here every morning- really good coffee, great service and very cool cafe. Great choice of Danishes, fresh juices, simple but good menu. Frequented by locals,always a good sign.

We found this place by chance late on a Saturday evening in Travestere and enjoyed the lively atmosphere. Not expensive.

Friendly wait staff and a nice vibe to this trendy cafe in Trastavere. Whenever we passed it was buzzing and full and tonight we joined in. Good beer on tap and pasta meals were delicious. Wine recommended was also good. And we really enjoyed the Beatles music played tonight.
