COFFEE IN FLORENCE

We found coffee prices in Florence to vary extremely. You may pay 90c or you may pay €4. Yes, we know its always less price to drink standing at the bar – but these price differences were on top of this cultral tradition. Also, please note,  we could not find a link between the price difference and the quality.

CAFE LA POSTA

We had coffee here on our first morning in Florence. The coffee was not so great but the bill was.

VOLUME CAFE

We stopped at Volume Cafe as I’ld heard it was good. We found cafes are either quite fancy (think dark red leather studded seats, polished wooden counters and waiters in vests and bow ties) or rather grungy (think dim lighting, visibly dirty walls and floors, ecelctic furniture and lots of street art, cigarettes and dusty ornaments) Volume Cafe was the later. While we felt the barista wasn’t particular pleased by our patronage, we had a nice lunch and Aaron enjoyed an espresso here.

UN CAFFE

We stopped for coffee and a doughnut at this grungy little cafe after our visit to the Academia. The coffee was ok, the doughnut was nice and the bill was extremely low.

SCUDIERI

We had lunch and coffee at this place which overlooks Piazza San Giovanni. We enjoyed watching the waiters boss helpless tourists in and out the place from our view point at our superior table with white tablecloth (as we were having lunch we were upgraded from a clothless table to a clothed one ). The service was remarkably slow and disjointed, but the coffee was strong.

We ducked down here on our last morning for a coffee at the bar.
