Magnificent hot chocolate! The addition of chilli and cream makes it a standout winner for best chocolate ever.

This place is a fun place to visit late at night - specially if you have been drinking beforehand. Huge mugs of thick chocolate - quite a fun stop off. Chocolate & wine available!

This place may be good for chocolate - I've not tried - but definitely not for aperitivi. We had 2 glasses of average wine and a few average nibbles. Cost was 16 euros. The large TV screen with videos of 1980s pop songs only made matters worse.

Hands down the best chocolate bar in town, impressive selection, chilled atmosphere, great tasting courses. Don't have much more to say, as a local we tend to come here in the winter to spend a nice evening with friends! Totally recommended.

It's great. They are open late - 1am and serve a large variety of hot and cold chocolate drinks of various strengths. We had the 50% cocoa hot chocolate with cream. The cream was really needed as the chocolate is so strong, sweet and rich. We couldn't finish ours, half the amount would have been enough. One can add chilli,... More

Cozy cafe on a side street near the Piazza del Carmine. Extensive cocktail menu and they make a terrific Negroni. Comfortable seating makes this a relaxing place to get out of the hustle and bustle and recharge before dinner.

Not only they ruined my husband's birthday , but they were rude and totally careless.

Hemingway offers a nice atmosphere to sit and chat, especially in the afternoon before the crowds arrive. But the only thing affordable is an espresso. Their syruppy hot chocolate or a piece of one of the cakes is likely to put you in the poor house. Despite the prices this is a favorite hangout for the trendy young people in... More

Had a short "refuelling " stop here. They have an extensive tea collection and some very interesting varieties of hot choclate. Prices are typical for the area and if you ask nicely they will give you the wifi password

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
