We stopped in for hot chocolate and almond cookies this December. It was too chilly to sit outside and it certainly was too pricey for an underwhelming dining room experience. I would probably reserve a visit for a warmer weather or just have coffee standing by the bar.

We made a quick stop for coffee and the desserts were calling our names, we tried one and then had to try more. They were delicious, fresh and in our opinion cheap. They were busy but if you can enjoy a drink and dessert it is worth it. Just sit, relax and enjoy dessert and the view.

Well I never got a chance to dine inside but grabbed pastries for breakfast a couple of times - they were great! Croissant particularly good, particularly with pistachio fillings. Pretty reasonable prices, and takeouts nicely packed too!

The view was great, the outdoor tables are wonderful, service was great, and the food was good. The food did not seem to have been pre-made and reheated.

First visit was lunch. Three American kids, my lovely who lived in Italy for a few years, our local tour guide, and me. Very well-appointed cafe right on the Piazza della Signiora. This place is great. Very Italian. Been there for 100+ years. All the waiters were 50+ yr old men in suits. Busy, chaotic bit well-managed. Moderate price with... More

The ambience is great in this cafe near the Uffizi and the Hot Chocolate is legendary for a reason. The servers are pretty jaded so the service was not great. It's expensive, but did I mention the Hot Chocolate?

We were heading to the Uffizi Gallery first thing in the morning, so we had breakfast here - they open at 7.30! The interior is very beautiful and the breakfast was good.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
