We stopped here for coffee mid-morning to enjoy the sunshine and people watch. The service was hit or miss - but then, we weren't in a big hurry.

Nice italian style lunch cafe on one of the main squares in Sorrento. Service is very good! Can be crowded during busy times.

Nice spot in the middle of the main square in Sorrento, much more reasonably priced than some of the neighboring bars, for example the Aperol spritz is 7.50 Euro here, 14 Euro next door. Good service, complimentary snacks with each round of drinks.

This is a very relaxed bar with an excellent cocktail menu. The staff are always attentive and very busy. Due to its excellent position on the piazza the bar is prefect for people watching.

We usually stopped in for a late night coffee or drink. Located in the city center so there's always something going on. You can see it all from this bar.
