Right next to the Via Saint Giacomo gate to the city, this small cafe is great for the morning or afternoon food and drink break. Since we rented an apartment just across the street, the morning cappuccino was a daily event. Reasonable prices too.

Right beside the basilica. This offered a place for a quick bite to eat for the family. The service was friendly if not prompt. Panini and sandwiches were fresh and good. Prices were reasonable.

We stopped here for coffee & beer after visiting the Basilica of St Francis. We were drawn in by the lovely, quiet terrace that looked out over countryside for as far as the eye could see - truly beautiful. Spotlessly clean inside, with only one or two other customers, the barman was really friendly and made a great latte! There... More

My husband and I stumbled on this quaint cafe as we were walking from St. Francis Basilica. What a breathtaking view! It looks like just a normal cafe from the outside, but when you order, to left, there is outdoor seating that is actually built into the walls of the city! YOu can look out over the Umbria rolling valleys... More

As you are walking away from the basilica here is this place that looks like a tiny cafe ...look closer at the beautiful 2 level patio with views over the Valley. A quiet respite from the crowds and for reflection. Delicious sweets and cappucino!
