Located just behind the Medici Chapel at Via Del Giglio N. 59R this cafe has wonderful coffee drinks & really nice wines. Friendly staff. The baristas decorate the coffees w/city sky lines in chocolate. Great location to take a break from sightseeing.

News cafe was an unexpected gem in a city and country renowned for its coffee. The owner was very charming and talented using beans creating something beyond regular coffee, if you pass by i recommend that you stop for a taste!
