This café has long been a favourite of mine. Where else can you enjoy a cup of coffee surrounded by a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture! The cloister was designed by Donato Bramante in 1504, his first project in the Eternal City. Bramante's compatriot, Raphael, arrived in Rome a few years later and his frescoes in the adjacent church of Santa Maria della Pace can be viewed from the café's lounge.
The café's decor is ultra-modern, which, I think, works remarkably well with the Renaissance architecture.
My only pique is that, for some inexplicable reason, the café no longer provides free Wi-Fi.
