“delicious sandwiches, owner on edge”
Review of Bar Jovis

Ranked #2 of 5 Coffee & Tea in Capri

Great location, just a few hundred metres from Villa Jovis, with a great garden and a fantastic view. The sandwiches were absolutey delicious, just what we needed after the hike. Pity that the owner should decide to spoil our experience by reprimanding our child (and myself) twice; first for lifting a plastic table and later for laughing loudly as I tickled him. Hell, it was 1 PM, not the middle of the night!.
In any case, I would definitely recommend the stop. Besides sandwiches and salads, the place serves coffee, cocktails and other drinks.

We had a very good lunch here after visiting Villa Jovis. It makes a very welcome break either after the long climb out of town, or after a hot visit to the villa. We were especially impressed by the genuine caring staff.

The first time we found this peaceful haven was on our way up to the Villa Jovis. Exhausted, hot and hungry, we had found "Paradise". We sat enthralled by the wonderful view . Caprese salad with fresh, crunchy bread and then the best ice-cream with fresh peaches. FANTASTIC!!
Since then, we have returned another 8 times over the years and always receive a warm welcome back!
This is an annual pilgrimage up through the quieter lanes through beautiful villas and you can find shade on the way up.
A lovely , lovely place.

We were walking up to Villa Jovis (the ruins of Emperor Tiberius's house) on Capri when we stumbled across this little gem of a family owned and run cafe/bar. With hindsight it is actually fairly well signposted, but you have to be looking out for it. We rounded a corner just as we were about to give up due to the heat and almost fell through the gate. The food was simple and tasty, the service friendly and the views amazing. It sits a couple of hundred metres above the sea, overlooking most of Capri Town and the main harbour. Sitting at one of the tables here is a stand-out memory of 10 days in Italy.
