No, not ice cream filled cornets, but what you might think of as croissants. Get down to the Baylon Cafe in Trastevere for proper Italian breakfast, and you are in for a real treat. Forget the so-called 'English breakfast'. Why? Ah! Squeamishness deters me from expanding on the details. But the cornetti, in quality, range of experience, and price are... More

We stopped into Baylon Cafe twice during our stay in Rome. We were able to try their beef carpaccio which was out of this world. One morning we were also craving a bigger breakfast, and luckily they served some more substantial dishes. Their croissant buffet looked fabulous, but we both got the Morrocan Eggs which were so delicious!

This restaurant had a great vibe. Being slightly off the piazza it was a little more relaxing. We had the evening drinks with buffet which were great value if you want a light meal. It was so convenient for us we went again the next day. The waiters were friendly and the service prompt.

We loved Baylon Cafe. We breakfasted there every day we were in Rome and really enjoyed what was on offer. Would highly recommend both for breakfast, lunch or just a simple refreshment. The staff there are wonderful and make you feel really welcome.

Great decoration, good music... I would say it's a nice place not only to have breakfast, but also to have lunch/dinner and to have a drink after that

We rested at Baylons Café today for a quick cappuccino and bisquit before visiting the vatican. The Café is stylish arranged, the young staff was very friendly. In total we paid 3.80? for two cappuccino and two bisquits - unknown for Roman conditions.

I stayed in Trastevere for three weeks this March, and often stopped in at the Baylon. Brunch is healthy and good. My husband and I had dinner here twice. The pasta was really delicious. It gets crowded with young hipster types, and service can be a bit slow. But the ambience makes up for that.

Definitely a cool and trendy café, a great place to hang out and just have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere. The wine by the glass was a little pricey but excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We didn't eat but it looked good!

I found this place while staying nearby on a recent holiday to Rome. It's a cool and happening place that a great mixture of a crowd. People from all ages flock to this place to enjoy great inexpensive coffee, beer and well made cocktail. It's a fun and vibrant place that I came to four days in a row. The... More

Cool cafe in Tras. Buzzy atmosphere in morning and evening. Breakfast croissants looked nice and drinks choice was good. As is usual in Italy you take pot luck as to whether there is table service or not, best to ask if you're not sure. Staff helpful enough, didn't look overjoyed to be at work but who does? Wifi a bit... More
