Worst experience in Florence. Expensive, bad food, rude barmans. Two words: Tourist trap! Please don't get in!

Friendly service but very expensive: all prices to the table are 1.5x the price of take-away. The biggest pull was the chocolate milkshake: 10 ? and tasted like any store bought one!

Thought we would get a quick coffee and a bite to eat in mid morning. Granted, the prices are displayed with the products, but still, to pay 35 euros for 4 coffees and 4 bakery products I think is over the top.

Four of us popped in here for breakfast a couple of days ago. we left 58 Euros lighter. The coffee was the most expensive I have ever had and it was by no means the best. The "American Breakfast" (which they advertise) was no where to be seen. It was a complete rip off. STAY AWAY!

This place was the biggest rip-off we experienced in 10 days in Italy. We popped in for a quick lunch after visiting Pitti Palace and Boboli Gardens. My 8 year old daughter ordered orange juice, fruit salad and a plate of plain spaghetti . . .cost for her meal alone was US$37. And on top of that, the fruit salad was lousy and the plate of spaghetti not enough for an 8 year old. The menu is not well posted, and by the time we were seated upstairs we were stuck. Don't be fooled by the welcoming host at the door. The waitress was a piece of work - frowning, impatient and generally unpleasant. This place would be out of business if it weren't for us tourists, so no matter how hungry you are, don't stop here.
