I stopped here every day for breakfast and coffee. The Service and coffee are excellent and try the yoghurt with black cherries and chocolate. Lovely place to people and lake watch.

We stopped here for coffee and watched the world go by for the best part of 2 hours! This is what I imagined a cafe in the Italian lakes to be like, our server was lovely, great coffee and the views within this classic little town were stunning.

Came here for dinner and waited a long time as staff said it would be 10mins which was more like 30. The views are amazing but the food and service and very average.

We didn't order food but ordered pre dinner cocktails. Huge menu with wine, beer, cosmos, mojitos, spritz, etc. Everything about $6 and they give you some snacks to munch on. Great view of the lake and we enjoyed watching people feed the ducks.

Can't beat the view early in the morning with a nice cappuccino and brioche . They open at 8 which is fairly early by Italian standards . Reasonable prices

We returned to this restaurant twice during our 4 day stay; Lunch both times. The food was delicious: pizzas, salads, platters - all highly recommended. The setting is stunning - right on the water front.

Varenna Cafe is open late (I think 1am) so ideal for a drink or coffee after your meal out, which we did most nights. The chocolate & pear cake was delicious, peach cake and blueberry & amaretti cake were nice too. They have a really extensive range of drinks and play nice music. The interior design is lovely and tasteful.... More

My husband and I came to this cafe as a retreat from the never ending rain on Saturday the 20th August. The waiter made us feel very welcome despite our drenched clothes. The service was speedy, the food great tasting (both had pasta) and to top it all the waiter insisted on giving us an umbrella before we left (which... More
