While exploring Florence we tried a lot of places to eat out round the city but the best ones turned out to be located just round the corner from our aparthotel. And the one where we had the most enjoyable breakfast was Caffe Sabatino. The only problem was a really big choice of pastry and panini - it is difficult... More

Suffering from Florence Feet (far too much walking) We stumbled across this lovely little Caffe. Great choice of Panini's and Pastries. Nicole had a fantastic Strawberry Daqeri. It was so good we dropped by the next afternoon We tried for Breakfast on our last morning , but we were too early, a real shame.

This place it's just special, from the friendly staff to the atmosphere. Cappuccino and Croissant. Espresso afterward and that's it. Fair price in such an expensive tourist city centre.

After a terrible experience with our dinner restaurant, where we had walked out without eating (although we did pay!), my son & I were walking down Via Faenza looking for something real & fine & truly local; a nice place in which to spend our last evening in Italy. We really didn't think we'd find anything. Then we passed by... More

The Aperol Spritz was amazing! The garnish was a lovely added touch. It's the biggest I've had in Italy too. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Went there with my mother because it was near from our hotel and it was a great surprise! We had breakfast everyday on our stay in Florence. The lunch was served really quickly and it was delicious. The price is good and the staff is gentle.
