“Didn't know what I ate .. but it was PERFECT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I ordered a double espresso and some of the sweet nuts, also couple of stuff that looked good, everything was perfect, they were not friendly, but it is a Starbucks style, you order, pay and pick up your stuff, why would my rating be affected, I gave them 5 stars, if tripadvisor had had 10 stars, I would have given them 9 stars of of ten

“Nice position but unfriendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Nice place but seem to be not interested in tourists and were not very friendly at all. I tried speaking italian and they just looked at me as though i had 2 heads ! .The pastries looked nice but had to try and get a look through locals just standing and chatting

“yummy but not tourist friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Found this from a book about cafe life in Venice - cakes and chocolates were excellent but the staff were less than welcoming. Would not return except to buy some of their delicious chocolate covered orange peel.
