This is a popular coffee place for locals. The very affordable cappuccinos are excellent, although you need to specifically ask for the fabulous cocoa drawings of local florentine sights on top!

A must do in Florence for all capucino lovers, you'll be very amazed by the service... And price! Pastery is also very tempting, a perfect way to start your day.

Great for a few drinks before you go out for dinner (cocktails €5). Waiter/owner was very friendly would certainly go again.

Definitely worth a stop if you want a coffee, smoothie or pastries. They were all delicious. But what was most notable was the friendly welcome from the barrister. He definitely make the Italian coffee experience special for the kids with his drawings on our cappuccino....More

We went here because of the good rating. The quality is definitely below Florence's average and highly overpriced if you want to sit outside. There are doubtlessly better places to drink coffee in this great city.

Guy making cappuccino does an awesome job of making designs in your drink. He made us three different versions of the Duomo and joked with all the customers as they came in. Best 1.3 Euros spent on Cappuccino in Florence

Ordered frappacino (iced coffee) for something around €2.50 and a moccachino with Nutella. Looks amazing and presented well but I found the coffee very weak. Frappacino tastes more like iced milk, and the moccachino was also rather bland - Nutella was a great hit though....More
