The perfect treat mid morning after walking from San Marco to the train station. Try the cannelloni. Sweet but not overly so.

The size of the gelato you get for your 3 euro is incredible. Much better value than the other gelaterias. And it tastes amazing!! The pastries were also to die for. I ran here one night to get there before closing time. It closed at 10pm the night we got there.

I love the gelato. Very creamy and fresh! The onagiri was strange but it was okay. The rice and spinach fried was too salty, but the shrimp and egg sandwich in soft bread was delicious! I came back everyday for their gelato during my stay in Venice. The staff does not really smile, but they are nice and efficient.

Excellent place for a quick snack. There is not a huge selection but the staff is friendly and the place is neat and clean.

I've seen several Majer coffee's in Venice -all around the island, but I've only tried the one located in Cannareggio -close to the Nuovo Ghetto. Very good coffee's and pastries. Peolpe are very kind. Highly recommend it!

Majer is just so convenient, and delicious. As I was staying very close by, I found that I came here a few times a day to get snacks, as well as a coffee fix. The sweets are amazing, the coffee is great (standing up 90 cents for a macchiato) and the staff are very friendly (as well as multilingual). I... More

We visited Venice back in June 2013, so this review is a bit late coming. That said we self catered nearby and found this little bakery a great place to drop in for an early morning coffee or a pastry. It's a bit off the main tourist route so it has a slower more local feel about it. Was our... More

Having visited the Ghetto in the Cannaregio district of Venice we had noticed a sign on a small café/restaurant on our way which seemed to suggest coffees for under one euro ( this was ultimately true for takeaways and standing but only a little more expensive if you sat in ). On our way back we stopped at the Café... More

Me and my wife entered Majer to have a break from the heat and commotion outside ( on Sunday afternoon Venice can get quite crowded). To our pleasant surprise we discovered the best pasta we have had in Venice (alla genovese), very good pastry and all kind of cakes. The atmosphere is one of tranquility and relaxation making you fell... More
