Manged to grab a parking spot just outside and sat in the sun with a big and very nice coffee playing with someone else's dog, happy days. Many different languages being spoken, many tales being told.

There are so many cafe's in Italy, so when you find the perfect, hot frothy cappuccino for just over one euro, you go back every day. The staff is super friendly and it provides many selections of food to complement a perfect cup of coffee.

We have eaten here twice since our arrival, and will be breakfasting here tomorrow. The food is good, as is the coffee. If it's a nice day ask about sitting in the garden, which is outdoors with fabulous views on all sides
