My first stop in Firenze, after getting off the train from Rome, was this little cafe for breakfast. The Duomo art that was painted into the foam just blew me away. It was gorgeous, and the photos of it are a favorite souvenir from my day in Florence. I also had a cornetto con crema which was absolutely delicious. Very... More

Hidden gem in the middle of Florence Italy. I will recommend this wonderful cafe to everyone that has the opportunity to visit Florence. Must try the Orange and Chocolate chip muffin very tasty! This makes the experience worth your while!

This café was an absolute little gem! We ordered a cappuccino with some fresh paninis, the lovely barista created a fantastic little painting of the cathedral on the foam, and the food was clearly fresh and very flavourful, it was a great start to our day and definitely worth a visit!

This was a cool little coffee shop. Loved the decor and the coffee. The staff was also very friendly and made the coffee art when I asked for it. We would have come back more if our stay in Florence was longer.

This is such a lovely place. I never had a bad experience there, having gone there at least once a week during my semester in Florence. Marco, the owner and one of the most charismatic people you'll meet, is so friendly and is the king of cappuccino art. First, order at the bar, then go to the counter behind you... More

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love News Cafe. I studied abroad in Italy and lived right down the street from this coffee shop. Long story short I became best friends with the workers because I legit went here every single day. (If you see Salvo tell him Jessie says hi and misses him). Anyway cappuccini... More

This is a popular coffee place for locals. The very affordable cappuccinos are excellent, although you need to specifically ask for the fabulous cocoa drawings of local florentine sights on top!
