“Hidden gem”

Caffetteria Il David
Ranked #46 of 111 Coffee & Tea in Florence
Neighbourhood: San Marco

Neighbourhood: San Marco
Reviewed 30 August 2015

This place is sandwiched between all the cliche, expensive tourist cafes on the square. This place had a more authentic Italian feel and all the other customers were locals. The breakfast was good and a decent price. Of course it's not as beautiful as the touristy cafes but when you're looking for a sandwich that doesn't cost eight euros then this is better!

It was a little cool outside but fleece were provided for those who wanted them, as well as patio heaters. The staff were non intrusive, the food fantastic and of course and unbeatable location.

Had a few minutes before going in to see David Stopped in here to get a drink and use bathroom. The sandwiches and pastries looked so great we had to order something to eat. Best tomato mozzarella pannini we had on the entire trip. Also had cappuccino. I have never seen a cup made so fast. The friendliest owners we met on the entire trip. Wish we had more time to spend here, but were on a tour. If you are in this area you MUST stop in and try it. You will not be disappointed.

This is not a place that normally gets any recognition on review sites. It's totally nondescript, just another touristy cafe near the very crowded Academia. But really, there's more to this place. Run by husband and wife. Both speak impeccable English. They offer up sandwiches to go. Waters, colas and of course coffee. Seemed less expensive than most places with 1 Euro waters. If you need a Quick, inexpensive snack... Try this place right on San Marco Piazza. Not fancy, just efficient.

My husband and I went here with a friend who lives in Florence and goes here often. Very friendly atmosphere, excellent service, and good food. We would definitely return.
