We did the hike from Monteresso to Vernazza and needed to replenish before continuing on to Corniglia. We were too early for lunch so we had breakfast and hung around for lunch. Excellent food, even better staff. Great place.

I did see signs there about rooms as well, but that is all I know about. We booked a room at larosadeiventi right across the street. It was spotless and spacious. Have a great trip!

As you get off the train and go down the stairs, there is a street to the right . The cafe is still on the top of the hill. If you go straight down the hill on the main street of Vernazza, you'll miss it.
