Went there after reading all the great reviews and the place was empty, we got alright service, alright coffee and nothing to rave about other than the price :)

Was traveling with a group of friends and the barista welcomed us all. Great place to grab a cup of coffee cappuccino my favorite thus far.

It's hard to find a good-priced and good-quality cappuccino in Florence but News Cafe does it both. The art makes it so unique and the barista is so friendly and makes you feel like a local. The muffins are great too!

I've been to News Cafe a few times in the last 5 years or so, but never had the coffee, we had a lovely late breakfast of pastry and cappuccino, great works of art, shame to drink it. Great friendly atmosphere, and the only place I got a decent wifi signal

My wife and I stopped by this cafe this morning. Very clean and welcoming cafe, loved their cappucino. It's not too far from the Florence train station. I recommend anyone to stop by this place.

This place has nice coffee though it can take a little while to make it. In saying that I went back for round 2 on the same day so it is still worth the wait & the amazing cheap prices!

It's not the cheapest place ever, and the latte art is ultimately a gimmick. We ordered an espresso (1.10), a cappuccino (1.30) and two croissants (1.00 each). They were decent but not the best ever. The prices were average by Florence standards, maybe a bit on the lower side. The service is also a bit slow because they have a... More

Visited here with a friend for breakfast one morning while we were in Florence. We both ordered cappuccinos and muffins which were both quite tasty (and inexpensive at €3.80 total). The barista was very amusing and incredibly talented. The cafe clearly attracts many international students as there were many English speakers.
