“For chocolate lovers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

Hemingway is a very nice place where to taste chocolate in many different forms: drinking, cake, pralines.
In Florence there are two great places where to have terrific chocolate and Hemingway is one of these!

“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

Place has a very nice atmosphere, you can seat there and read, also it is very cosy. Deserts are good and it is one of the rare places where you can find a good tea. Minus- a bit costly.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2010

We loved this. A resturant dedicated to chocolate and dessert wines. How much better can you get?

“Wonderful wonderful wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2009

If you've any appreciated for chocolate, walk right across the city to get here. In fact, if you happen to be in Italy, get on a train.

We ordered pretty much randomly from the menu and got a triple shot of fine rum, a collection of chocolate truffles with a watermelon jus poured liberally over them and the thickest greatest 70%cocoa-ist hot chocolate I've ever had.

It's a great place. The staff are friendly. There's a real buzz in the air (though that may have been the alcohol and sugar rush) and there's a lot to see nearby.

“Hemingway's , più buon caffè di cioccolato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2009

Chocolate is one of my passion and love it of course! I love dark chocolate and mia amicas found this little cafe and it is just delightful. I enjoyed the chocolatissismo and the 44% & 50% cicoccolata calda con piu latte ...ah...benissimo... not once but twice we lived there as students for 3 months. The ambiance and decor is very unique, and the walls are blue ,which happens to be my favorite color. It feels like your caught in between a small library/ Ernest Hemingway book/Italianess......earthy. If i were were to open up a chocolate cafe it would be something similar to this. Just across the river off of Ponte Vecheccio 2nd bridge hang right walk to the other brige heading then there is a bakery at the end corner of street pass it and make a rightkeepwalking tillseea parkinglot on the left walk through it into the NW corner andthere is a little street. This coming from the duomo. If your a student its a little pricy but worth every penny.
