We came here twice at the end of our trip and the food was farm to table fresh, coffee was amazing, and the staff were welcoming and fun ( Marie is super sweet abd such a joy she radiates with positivity!) Pastries were really good...as well, I had the bomba de crema ( donut) which was fantastic. Will be back thank you Marie and crew!More

What a great find! -- Great vibe and a kind, warm, pride-of-quality and service feeling you can really sense when interacting with the staff. The people -- that's what makes a difference. Excellent coffee, loved the pastries & avocado toast. We made a reservation every...time we visited and were always seated immediately.More

At first, I felt it was very touristic and probably not that good. Their delicious brunch and coffee made me change my mind though. If I go back to Rome, I will go back to Barnum Cafe for sure.

Finding a place to have a good breakfast in Rome seems to be a challenge and the options limited. Barnum was one of the few places we could find (based on reviews) that seemed to have a substantial breakfast to set you up for a...day of sightseeing. The egg, salmon, hashbrown and avocado on toast is the breakfast of choice, however like many other reviews I would avoid the poached eggs as they are only just above raw, scrambled being the better option. Its not without its faults (pricey, undercooked eggs, hard pancakes), but given that most other places only offer croissants or light breakfasts, it is by default one of the best. Thanks to Trip Advisor this place can get busy, so book ahead or get there early.More

Burnt banana bread, poached eggs the texture of jelly that I still got charged for even though I sent back. This place thinks it’s way better than it is.

Here I got the best coffee and best service in Rome. Always with a big smile and very quick. Everything from fabulous V60,Aeropress and Espresso to mouthwatering dishes. Brunch,cakes(try the cheescake it's heaven) and wide selection of great fresh juices. This will definitely be my...first stop when I will come back to Rome. Oh yes I will I love Rome.More

We were lucky this was right on our doorstep and it did not disappoint! The best coffee in Italy by a mile and they do an excellent brunch to go with it. We visited everyday of our trip and the staff were so friendly!

No comment for the foods. But I left my sunglasses in the Cafe. Next morning I stopped by and asked for it. I realized that the staff had found it and did not keep it in a secure way. The staff said that they found...it and just put in front of the countertop. So, The answers were not convincing. I also requested the cam recordings to be examined but they denied.More

From the fabulous coffee to the absolutely delicious breakfast, Barnum's was amazing. From the perfectly poached eggs, homemade bread and gavalax to the sweet tomatoes and crispy bacon. The service was excellent, the setting relaxed and comfortable. There was a small queue but this is...always a sign of excellence, especially for Barnum.More

Lovely little cafe with great coffee. Only thing to mention is that our poached eggs were pretty much raw and inedible but waiter didn’t seem to think this was out of the ordinary- perhaps this is how they eat their eggs in Rome! Great to...try but certainly some other places for slightly more affordable pricesMore

Raw poached eggs. I ordered the poached eggs with avocado and bacon and the poached eggs came runny with no cooked white egg. When I highlighted this with the waiter he told me this is how eggs are served.

I would not recommend this place. I ordered the club sandwich and the chicken was RAW!!! They said the chicken was ‘slow-cooked’ but the chicken was pink and slimy, not even white or cooked. Slow-cooked means cooked not pink. We thought it was Parma ham...or a different type of meat, that’s how pink it was! The images of the food that you see on Instagram, is nothing like what you get. Very disappointing, I really hope I don’t get sick because I ate some of the food unknowingly. The management is awful too because, instead of saying ‘Sorry, we’ll speak to the chef’ and giving it a rest, this Italian guy was super rude trying to justify that the chicken was cooked when he didn’t even see it. The management was nowhere to be seen as well. They really did try to make me pay for it, what an awful customer service. They should at least be understanding towards the customer, not plain rude and disregarding. This place is not worth it at all. I would go somewhere else for breakfast.More
