We called in for a quick morning coffee and snack. Speedy and friendly service, great coffee, shortbread and cakes, very reasonable prices. They also had a great-looking range of well-priced light lunches on display, although we didn't get to try them.

Just had a drink outside with a view of the Piazza and all the shoppers and tourists walking by. I guess I might call this a hip place not a typical Italian spot.

We came here every morning for great Italian coffee and very friendly service. I don't about the Japanese food they apparently serve, but the morning coffee here was great, and the service very friendly.

This restaurant looked lovely, so we decided to have an evening meal there. Unfortunately, once we were shown to a table, we waited 15 minutes and no one came back to take our order, not even for drinks. We decided to leave and went elsewhere.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
