“Addictive.. 'happening' little Bar/Cafe'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

A short distance from the heart of Florence in Via Gioberti (just past Piazza Beccaria) is this stunning little Bar which exubes so much atmosphere! A mix of retro/modern chic decor.
The vibe in the place is due to the two lovely women behind the bar. They are welcoming and full of personality, always available for a chat and happy to give suggestions for lunch!
The menu is not a complicated list of choices, but a short list of fresh, good quality food!
And we were actually surprised at the prices of the meals...cheap!
Between 7.30-11.30am they promote a special of 70c espresso/90c cappuccino & 80c patries!
And the quality is Numero Uno!
Perfect place to have Breakfast or lunch amongst the locals!
One visit is not enough...this place becomes addictive!

“A must stop coffee shop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

In Beautiful Florence Italy, we stayed just out of the centre of Florence and were frequent visitors to this coffee shop amazing staff smiles and laughter. Atmosphere above the rest modern/ chic all rolled into one.

“This was a VERY friendly place with a very nice atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This was an extremely friendly place. They have wifi and they were very helpful is telling us what places to go and visit in Florence. The coffee and pastries were also very good. They were also open when almost all other shops in the area were closed which was very convenient. I recommend this place!!
