This classic cafe that survives changing village. I'd get there before it goes the way of the Figaro. Service not great as you are paying for image but the pastries and coffee are delicious.

when you walk in you think that you should have made a reservation but the staff here are great. They are Italian and the food here is excellent and the wine selection is the best. At the end of dinner you can have a nice espresso or a wonderful cream filled dessert, your choice.

The mere fact that they didn't serve American coffee is enough for a standing ovation. If you are going to be traditional you might as well go all the way! The waitresses & bartenders speak Italian to one another, the menu is identical to

They were in a rush to get rid of us and when I asked for an explanation I received the rudest response from the manager himself.
