This was our favorite coffee café while in Florence. The barista was always friendly and welcoming. Everything was well priced compared to other cafés in the area. The cappuccino was my favorite & the latte art is a fun touch. It is cash only.

The barista was always in a fantastic mood and made some of the prettiest and cheapest cappuccinos in the area. His artwork and dog were added perks!! If you want a great start to your day come here!

The barista was cool and the coffee was fine, and it was the cheapest coffee we had in Firenze. However, the toilet was poorly facilitated, which has no toilet paper and the toilet seat was missing as well. And the flushing wasn't always working.

We visited here on our way back from the station, based on a recommendation we had read on a blog. The cappuccino artwork was unbelievable, I almost didn’t want to drink it!!
