“we spent ages looking for this place, but it was so worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Superb coffee, drink it standing at the bar or at small high marble table. And do enjoy the delicious pastries; the canoli are truly wonderful!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Despite being on the total tourist path, the cakes tasted fantastic and were very reasonably priced! Even though they didn't have teas we like (Earl Gray or anything herbal) at the moment we were there, we were happy to take the cakes away

“Favorite Bar Pasticceria in Venezia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We came to arrange our daily travels through the streets of Venice so that we could visit Bar Ballarin as often as possible. This is where I learned to love caffe' (espresso), a pursuit that I have carried home with me. The choice of bakery items and candy is vast and always good. Try anything. At lunch times they offered us little mini pizzas and with a little aqua, caffe', dolce it made a lovely and affordable snack on our way. When we return to Venice this is one of the first places we will visit for sure. There is no real seating as I remember, its just a place for quick (and frequent) pit-stops. Popular with tourists and locals alike.

“Not really a restaurant, but well worth a visit...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This is basically a bakery, veering towards the sweeter end of what that entails....
There is a bit of space to stand and eat your delicious pastries with a fresh coffee, but that's about it.
Having said that, we had some items from their selection, and they were quite magnificent...
For a guilty treat (as if there weren't enough in Venice) try out their produce.
