we saw this cozy cafe when walking back from the central market to our hotel closer to the river. the cafe looked very nice. but having prices shown for take away and actually being calculated according to their usual menu (without any special warning) is a very unpleasant way to get some extra from their clients. the coffee was OK. the sandwiches and donuts were also good for a quick breakfast, but not the prices... and EUR7 for a small glass of squeezed orange juice with ice..? no, thank you. bye bye Caffe Le Rose...

My wife is a coffee lover and really enjoyed the cappuccino. We stopped twice for coffee in the morning and again for a nice light lunch. It is mostly Italian's who visit so you get a nice taste of an Italian caffe. They do speak English and we were welcomed. It is just across the street and down the block from Santa Maria Novella.

Stopped there for lunch, they got the order completely wrong, brought the proper order then tried to charge us for both orders, 4 items, 2 that we sent back that were wrong.

What did we know just got there past the train station, where there was a Mcdonalds, should have eaten there instead.

Cheers

Come out of Station Santa Maria Novella, turn right. You'll see a McDonalds and a host of other fast food. Ugh. You don't want that; you're in Italy! Walk to the right, and around a corner and -- surprise! A quiet square, and the Caffe le Rose. You can sit outdoors. The staff is friendly and multilingual. The food is fine, better than McDonald's!

Excellent lunch at Caffe Le Rose - we almost missed it, it is near the train station but on a quiet corner. Sat outside and had lovely pasta and vegetarian sandwich. Good value.
