“Lucky find in a small street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

A delightful clean, bright small café with everything a tired tourist could want - ice creams, a decent cup of tea, served in a pot, coffee, delicious cakes and slices of pizza at half the price of the other more salubrious places in the busy tourists squares in Florence. The staff were friendly and helpful so we enjoyed our visits to this café where we were made welcome and comfortable.

“Excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This little gem of a cafe is by the Piazza S Maria Novella near the corner of Via dei Fossi.
The Gellatarias on the main square charge twice the amount for ice cones that this cafe does.
You can also purchase tea, coffee, bottled beer, cakes, rolls, slices of pizzas - anything for a light snack at very reasonable prices. It is also extremely bright and clean with friendly staff making it so much more attractive.
