I read about this place on tripadvisor and we decided to try it out for our first breakfast in Florence as it was close to our appartment. Needless to say we came back every morning as we loved the atmoshpere, the food, the prices. They make some amazing scrambled eggs.

Suffering from Florence Feet (far too much walking) We stumbled across this lovely little Caffe. Great choice of Panini's and Pastries. Nicole had a fantastic Strawberry Daqeri. It was so good we dropped by the next afternoon We tried for Breakfast on our last morning , but we were too early, a real shame.

This place it's just special, from the friendly staff to the atmosphere. Cappuccino and Croissant. Espresso afterward and that's it. Fair price in such an expensive tourist city centre.
