Great brunch. Small menu made well and meets American expectations— bloody Mary’s, mimosas, coffee cocktails, comfy seating, English speaking. Would recommend! We came at 1030-1100 on a Sunday and didn’t have any issue getting a table immediately.

The most delicious brunch I have ever had! Their eggs cooking skills are out of this world. Very filling dishes, well thought and amazingly cooked. Not typical Tuscan dishes, but a definite must-have.

As an American living in Florence this is the first place that caught my eye. I was not disappointed (as many other places that claim to have brunch) and we have returned many times to enjoy their quirky decor and true brunch food. It’s normally...More

We struggled to find places that did big breakfasts. We came here at midday and the brunch selection was very large. They have healthy vitamin smoothies, cocktails and coffees. Very lovely breakfast and quirky little café. It is not traditionally Italian and serves many different...More

Like most visitors to Italy I quickly adapted my breakfast to a cappuccino and croissant. But after a few weeks, I must say I begin to miss bacon and eggs. If you are in Florence and find yourself similarly situated I suggest you drop by...More

Italy in general is not a breakfast location given most places don’t open until 10 or 11am. Being an early riser myself I needed a good whole breakfast before starting off my day. When I located Le Vespe my life changed! There breakfast was very...More

My wife and I had breakfast here towards the end of our Italy trip in early October. Aside from cooking our own meals, it had proven difficult to get a ‘conventional’ breakfast in our sense. Even more so, there is a dearth of normal iced...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
