A charming, artistic cafe. It serves great breakfast and interesting coffee. The staff is friendly, and it was a great place to get to know members of the village!

We had a late supper here one night. Pizza was tasty. Wine was both good and red. Fun place. Groups of all sizes enjoying themselves. We did too.

The best coffee! And they actually serve eggs for breakfast! Always friendly and welcoming, a family run business that is a gem that caters well for all tastes. Their salads are delishious! Open breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or just have a drink and soak up the atmosphere!

This is a great spot - indoor and outdoor seating, really nice staff, often there's live music and sometimes they're open late-ish, which can be hard to find in the Cinque Terre!

and we were not disappointed. Several people were there having wine and appetizers. This also seemed to be a popular place for breakfast buyt the number of filled tables.

Stopped in in hopes of a late breakfast but they stop serving eggs at 11:30. Split a tomato & mozzarella focaccia and was kinda shocked at how delicious it was. Wish I had taken a pic!

Great coffee but stale pastries. Ham focaccias tasty and fresh. Service could be friendlier and staff informed of local accom breakfast arrangements. Not all non european tourists are Americans!

We ate here on two different mornings during our stay in the Cinque Terre. Bacon and Eggs! And the bacon - we have never had better bacon - anywhere. Service was good - ate outside - fun watching all the people!

After a long day at the beach and in the sun, I decided around 9pm I wanted a little food and another glass of wine, ok 2 glasses. This was one of the few places open late.
