Sitting outside was nothing more than just another cafe.

We coincidentally sat in this cafe. Later, I realized that it is Stela Polare which I saw on TA. Honestly, sitting outside is just like being in any other cafe, nothing... read more

Traditional coffee house, Vienna style, with inexpensive choices and nice decoration. Not more than just a cafe.. that's all.

Staffed by young, unexperienced and rude personal whose objective is simply to maximize table rotation. The menu and options are very basic and the quality is poor. The place has no charm and lacks the "old days" atmosphere. A TV was on broadcasting the news! In conclusion a place to be avoided, furthermore taking into account the excellent alternatives in...

Revisiting Trieste from Venice and strolling through the central area we chanced on this cafe with it's historic interior. Preparing to write this report we were surprised by the negative reviews. Our experience was totally different. The staff were welcoming, the service good and the prices fair. We enjoyed excellent Panini's and Coffee, deciding to make use of the outside... More

I've been at that café to eat two tramezzini. The service was poor but the most annoying thing was the waiter. He was really rude treating to me and another customer. Il servizio molto scarso. La cosa che mi ha dato piu noia e' stato il cameriere assolutamente scortese e rude.

We coincidentally sat in this cafe. Later, I realized that it is Stela Polare which I saw on TA. Honestly, sitting outside is just like being in any other cafe, nothing special.Still I believe it may be very interesting inside, so next time I must go there and check it.But it was trully full of people, locals and tourists.

One of often recomended cefes/restaurant in Trieste, but in comparison with others we visited in Triste it is "only" slightly above average. Maybe our impression is caused by choice of food and by the fact that we were sitting outside (the interior is historic and looks very stylish).

This old Triestine cafe is in the square that overlooks the end of the canal. Old fashioned and elegant.
