“Fabulous place for a quick lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The landlord of the apartment that we rented in Venice recommended Brek for a quick lunch stop before check-in (we arrived 2 hours before we could check in). Boy, was he right! Although not what I would consider "authentic italian" by any means, this was a lovely place for a quick, cheap lunch. I had the vegetable wrap (in the front counter with feta cheese, veggies, wrapped in a tortilla) and it tasted so fresh and good that I got another one on the way back to the train station. Definitely recommend for a quick, fresh lunch. Very conveniently located to the train station / on the way to the buses as well.

“Great coffee and tasty food at bargain prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Break offers great self-service food at very low prices. There are various pastas and paella made to order, salads and desserts. Lots of locals eat here. The dining room is clean and comfortable.

“Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

A couple of minutes away from Hotel Abazzia serves good Italian food freshly cooked in front of you. 500 mls red wine for 3.30 euros!! Not "posh" but well worth a visit.

“AWESOME for cheap tasty food + WIFI!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

I wished I had known about this place sooner!! It was right by our hotel, and was the cheapest way to get wifi. I just had a glass of wine (1 Euro!) and got wifi while I sat around, using my iphone. I wished I had an appetite, the food looked really tasty, and it was a super cheap way to eat! So many choices, and it was all freshly prepared, and was cafeteria style. I would go there in a heartbeat. Really interesting to see other kinds of people who go there too, not a bunch of snotty rich tourists, but young and old people.

“Perfect place for a traveler!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

This place has everything. Gret prices(4.50 for a large salad, 3.90 for pasta) the least expensive price we have seen. Clean, updated and comfortable atmosphere. No cover charge(which we had paid $5 cover charge for lunch today at a different place which did not even pay for water on the table:(. They have free wifi here too!!! The best of everything and more of a nicer cafeteria style place.
