Great little cafe serving nice coffee in central Trieste. Seating is limited, but has a very interesting antique design internally, so if you can get a seat, it’s worth relaxing and enjoying the coffee there. Feels very much like a locals favourite, rather than somewhere...More

Near the main square. Cafe has nice decoration that gives an antique feeling. Was there late in the afternoon and pastries are closed to being sold out. Left mainly with sandwiches. Coffee is good and sandwiches are ok. Nothing much to hype about except for...More

First opened in 1915, Torinese is an original Art Nouveau bar, with an interior adorned by works of renowned Triestine cabinetmaker Debelli, as well as other known designers and a bright illuminated chandelier hanging overhead. Its place in Trieste's history was made official in 1999, when it entered the list of historic Italian bars. In 2014, the timeless ambiance was given a much needed shot in the arm with a new youthful management team, whose main focus is on mixing up perhaps the best cocktails in the city. You can also drop by during the day for fresh pastries or a light lunch.
