Drinks here are super cheap and it’s a lovely place to sit on the square and take in the atmosphere. The square isn’t busy, more local and less tourists. Pay by cash not card.

This is a reasonably busy place that seemed relatively popular with locals. We had a coffee and sandwiches and it was decent enough and very cheap. Nice enough without being great so would probably look around and try another café next time.

This place is great for breakfast, coffee or wine. Was there many times during Venice stay. Sit back relax and watch the square life.

This place is in Campo Santa Margherita and is the perfect place for cheap eats and cheap drinks. We sat outside and were waited on immediately. We went “off menu” and ordered both meat and seafood cicchetti. They were delicious and only 2 Euros. The...More

We sat at a table outside on a busy Saturday evening to enjoy a couple of pre-dinner Aperols. The bar was busy but the waiting staff were attentive and our refreshing spritzes arrived quickly and were really strong. It's a great location to watch people...More

Lovely little place to sit and eat breakfast in the sun, very reasonably priced too! We would have gone back on day 3 if it was open.

This is definitely a place where you want a table on the outside so you can enjoy Venetians walk by, totally unaware that you are there.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob
