We stopped for breakfast and judging by how busy it was with locals, this is clearly a popular place. The friendly, assured service was a pleasure and the drinks and pastries were excellent. Oodles of ambiance as well.

Stopped here for gelato on a hot day in Volterra. Good selection of flavoured gelato together with delicious pastries. Shabby-chic interior. Highly recommend.
