Our (excellent) B&B sent us to this tasty little spot for our very sumptuous Breakfast. If you like chocolate, don't miss their hot chocolate. Silky and VERY rich! Yum.

We had breakfast here both mornings we were in Florence and could not recommend it highly enough. Loved it! Friendly staff, quick service, amazing food! Excellent Parma ham & cheese croissants as well as sublime vanilla- cream filled pastries. You have to try this place. Amazing vibe, lofty space, quirky decor. Loved it!

I tasted the best coffee here. You can pick from a number of options and you can get to sample the various coffee beans. I even bought an Italian coffee maker here. Service is quick and its a small place. Nice discovery.

This has been a consistent must-go for me, both during my studies in Florence back in 2005 and my return trips to Italy (most recently last year in October). Their Pesca Verde tea should be patented: there is nothing like it, and there likely never will be. I take it back home with me by the pound. Their baked goods... More

This place has a reputation to uphold. I shall add to this reputation by making a bold statement. Multiple times, during the period of study I found myself in Florence, I had the good fortune to partake in arguably one of the tastiest and deliciously made Iced Cappuccinos of my life. I beg of you not to take my word... More

We visited this cafe as part of a food tour and were joined by the owner to explain the different roasts of coffee. We returned a few days later and he remembered us and arranged for us to try some other blends. It was all very good! The shop also had nice pastries and yummy chocolate drinks for the kids.

When you want a short break from sightseeing head here. It's central and apart from excellent coffee you can refuel on lovely pastries and tasty lunch snacks. Get there early if you are planning lunch. The locals will soon form a queue.

One of the best coffee places conveniently located in central Florence on via del Corso. Wide variety of choices and really well made. Whatever your preferences and tastes might be, you can surely find something to enjoy right there. So much so that by the end of my week-long stay I bought couple of blends--Torrefazione Mokaflor classic and mexico--to take... More

Had the decaf. It was great. I had to have another one straight after it was that good. It was my first good decaf in Italy after a week sampling decaf at the big name cafes in Rome. The choices of coffee are amazing. The coffee menu is pages and pages long. The atmosphere is good with a spacious sitting... More

After ten days traveling through Italy, this is the best coffee we found, by far! Went back every day. Quality espresso, baristas who actually know what they are doing and take time to make a good drink. Extensive list of exciting coffee, tea and hot chocolate creations. Great location right in the center of town. This is a great place... More
