We enjoyed a superb breakfast: great coffee, croissants, sandwiches and superb fresh orange juice. The service was amazing and they gave us great advice about visiting Siena and what to see. Awesome, must return soon.

We came to Siena expecting to be treated like just another tourist family, but at Brandis Cafe and Restaurant we were treated like regulars, better yet family.

The amazing warmth we were shown by the couple that own this little place must be unique in such a tourist destination and I a can't recommend stopping here on your way in to Siena enough.

Park your car at the security controlled car park across the road at the entrance to Siena and the start your trip around Siena here with home made gluten free food or a great cup of coffee. You can sit and enjoy watching tourist go by surrounded by locals stopping in to get a coffee.

If you are lucky you might be given valuable sight seeing advice like we did or even aa hand drawn map like the one they gave us.

We even stoppen for another coffee and ice cream before getting back in the car.

Blandis made Siena a very special warm place for my family.

A must.

We accidentally found this café and were more than impressed by the service, the quality of the coffee and the price. Moreover, the Limoncello was by far one of the best we have tried in many years in Italy. It’s definitely worth stopping by at this place whenever you come to Siena, especially as it is close to a parking lot where many tourists park when starting their Siena trip.

We have stopped here twice after parking at the St. Catherine's car park. Both times the staff were very friendly and efficient, and both times our cappuccinos were excellent. Don't know if it has been rebranded - looks to be called Caffe River now.

It is also a great place to sit with views up to Old Siena.
