“Delicious for breakfast and amazing cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Don't even think of having your breakfast in your hotel !. this is the place to enjoy a calories rich breakfast or just a coffee. Busy with locals having their daily doze of caffein and sugar, fresh pastries for all tastes. Friendly service.

“Great atmosphere, great espresso, great pasticceria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Walking by and wanted an espresso (€ 1,--). One of the best ever. Took some dolcetti (pastries) and I wanted to stay for ever. But the wife was on a windowshopping-tour, headin to the Rialto-bridge.....
The day after, I found this place again and there was my espresso (again!).

“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.
