“Wonderful wonderful wonderful”
Reviewed March 1, 2009

If you've any appreciated for chocolate, walk right across the city to get here. In fact, if you happen to be in Italy, get on a train.

We ordered pretty much randomly from the menu and got a triple shot of fine rum, a collection of chocolate truffles with a watermelon jus poured liberally over them and the thickest greatest 70%cocoa-ist hot chocolate I've ever had.

It's a great place. The staff are friendly. There's a real buzz in the air (though that may have been the alcohol and sugar rush) and there's a lot to see nearby.

“Hemingway's , più buon caffè di cioccolato!”
Reviewed January 15, 2009

Chocolate is one of my passion and love it of course! I love dark chocolate and mia amicas found this little cafe and it is just delightful. I enjoyed the chocolatissismo and the 44% & 50% cicoccolata calda con piu latte ...ah...benissimo... not once but twice we lived there as students for 3 months. The ambiance and decor is very unique, and the walls are blue ,which happens to be my favorite color. It feels like your caught in between a small library/ Ernest Hemingway book/Italianess......earthy. If i were were to open up a chocolate cafe it would be something similar to this. Just across the river off of Ponte Vecheccio 2nd bridge hang right walk to the other brige heading then there is a bakery at the end corner of street pass it and make a rightkeepwalking tillseea parkinglot on the left walk through it into the NW corner andthere is a little street. This coming from the duomo. If your a student its a little pricy but worth every penny.

“Awesome coffee and chocolate”
Reviewed September 14, 2008

Don't miss Hemingway - an oasis of urban chic tucked away across the Arno. The ambience is terrific, great place to take a break and enjoy some coffee, chocolate or gelato. Easily the best cappucino I had in Florence - plus the truffles are to die for. I would particularly recommend the Turkish Coffee truffle!!
