Cool place to work with your laptop, read a few and have some Italian coffee. Also has some pastry, I like their muffin so I can recommend. Also possible to go for breakfast and enjoy a croissant since Europeans usually eat very little on breakfast will be just fine.

Really good coffee and cakes, good vibes, nice local/alternative coffee shop. It felt comfortable, like my favorite coffee shop back home. Food looked good. Attracts a nice group of people. No laptops during meal times.

Popped into this place when walking home and came back every night. Everything about this place is perfect! Service was great, cocktails delicious, and a brilliant selection of beers. Not only this, but you get free homemade bar snacks with all orders. :) would certainly recommend

If you like cocktails and you like great service, visit here. The people, the cocktails and the service you receive make this place worth a visit. They are some of the best cocktails I had while in Rome. Very inviting location. The only drawback is the lights are a little bright for a late night latin.

Something that I really appreciate about this place is that you feel you'r somewhere else once you sit inside, than you just have to pub up outside to smell the flavor of rome. The food is good and the cocktails are magic. Good for a cup of coffe or a fine drink thanks to the kind and professionalità of the... More

Beautiful espresso bar which is incredibly popular with the locals. Went in for a wine or coffee a few times and just watched the wonderful staff work. Coffee perfectly served with a smile and they are more than happy for you to chill with a cold vino. This is exactly what Rome is about...... Go, just go.....

Found on trip advisor as it was near our hotel Very good value for money, and good quality food. Plenty of locals using it which is always positive. We went in once for breakfast and once lunchtime, the croissants were amazing. We tried lots of coffee places but this was our favourite :-)

Thank Vanessa F

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
