This was a cool little coffee shop. Loved the decor and the coffee. The staff was also very friendly and made the coffee art when I asked for it. We would have come back more if our stay in Florence was longer.

This is such a lovely place. I never had a bad experience there, having gone there at least once a week during my semester in Florence. Marco, the owner and one of the most charismatic people you'll meet, is so friendly and is the king of cappuccino art. First, order at the bar, then go to the counter behind you... More

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love News Cafe. I studied abroad in Italy and lived right down the street from this coffee shop. Long story short I became best friends with the workers because I legit went here every single day. (If you see Salvo tell him Jessie says hi and misses him). Anyway cappuccini... More

This is a popular coffee place for locals. The very affordable cappuccinos are excellent, although you need to specifically ask for the fabulous cocoa drawings of local florentine sights on top!

I had breakfast today in News Cafè. Its really nice with positive vibes. The person making the cappuccino is very nice and welcoming. I said I want the Duomo picture on my cappuccino and he smiled and did it professionally. Definitely going back. Even the panini is sooo good, the bread is crispy.

A must do in Florence for all capucino lovers, you'll be very amazed by the service... And price! Pastery is also very tempting, a perfect way to start your day.

Great for a few drinks before you go out for dinner (cocktails €5). Waiter/owner was very friendly would certainly go again.

A latte, mochaccino, and 2 bottles of water for €6? Ridiculously cheap for the quality, latte art, and an AC place to sit for 2 hours. We had to ask for our check twice because the bartender didn't want us to leave. How often does that happen?
