Delicous coffee, friendly staff with prompt, cheerful service. We will certainly go back. Situated opposite the Continental Hotel and a favourite with the locals.

Stringers Cafe is one of the best cafes in Sorrento. It is a nice place to go for a drink, a snack or for lunch. However, the Cafe is rather expensive. It is by far the best Cafe to go to in Sorrento and the interconnecting supermarket next door is very convenient if you need anything.

Stringers is virtually a Sorrento institution having been there as long as I can remember and it is easy to see why. The coffee is always great, the small, bite-size quiches that appear early in the morning delicious, and the relaxation of sitting at an outside table with Fido gazing at the view well worth it.

Love the coffee and the seats in the sun with a view of the front beach. Also love the little egg and bacon muffins on offer. Just what you need after an early morning walk.

Popped in hete while waiting for the ferry. Mocopan coffee in use here. Lovely friendly staff but not coffee snobs. Seems to be a theme in sorrento but far too many staff getting in each others way. Coffee took far too long ro come

It has a great location at the top of the hill looking north over the bay and has outdoor tables to take advantage of the view. This is a combination old style grocery store and café and although it has lots a little of its old fashioned character it is worth a visit for a cup of coffee etc.

Thank Oldjack
