Is definitely my favourite spot for Italian breakfast in the whole city ! The croissant is very smooth and tasty and the “budino di riso” (a classic sweet typical from Florence ) was amazing.

Badiani has been "the" ice cream in Florence forever. Today, in a sunny and very hot day, I stopped by for a cooler! I am not a huge fan of ice creams however my unusual choice of Zuppa Inglese was just perfect! Amazing

Famous for the Italian ice-cream flavor "Buontalenti" which they invented. The taste was amazing! I tried the flavors Chocolate,Buontalenti and Pistachios Cream and it was truly great! The area is not so popular so you probably will not find turists ! Highly recommended:)

This is one of the few places in Florence, where you can also sit down for more than five minutes without having to spend a fortune for a small coffee.... The icecream is simply splendid (and also famous), but it unfortunately also has its price....
