We stumbled on this corner bakery while walking from our hotel in Piazza Della Indipendenza to the Duomo. You will see old ladies manning the counter and serving their delicious fresh offers with a smile. You first eat in the cramped space against the wall and then pay. They will heat things for you .Or take away. Prices are reasonable.... More

lovely little place that serves the best pistachio cannoli in Florence. They also have a great ricotta cake, but honestly, I felt like you can't go wrong with any choice. Highly recommended.

We stopped by for some breakfast on the go, and made sure we got some Ricotta tarts too! Everyone was fresh, soft and not overly heavy. The total price for six assorted pastries was only 7.50 euros, so it's extremely reasonable!

Just arrived in Florence stumbled upon this shop ordered two salami and cheese toasties. They were delightful and were only 2,5€! Absolute bargain considering the size of the ciabatta. Will definitely be coming back for lunch to try the other flavours. Thank you for your hospitality! :)

While the pizza was warming, I started to talk with the lovely lady behind the counter and another local lady who was shopping at the time. They were so... More

I tried so many cannoli in Florence and this one was my favorite! They have two flavors but I got the chocolate one. Also tried the chocolate filled croissant and it was delicious as well!
