The views from the rear of the cafe are outstanding. And it's a good place to grab a coffee or hot chocolate and a pastry if you're looking for something light to eat. It's been in business since 1868!

We have stopped here many times and love the coffee and the view. Pastries and good too. While not our favorite for lunch we love it for an espresso or cappuccino and a pastry.

The view is spectacular. Almost worth putting up with the snobby waiter and mediocre food. We ordered panini that were poor. We had to go get our own dessert because the waiter never came back. The cheesecake was actually above average.

The service was attentive and informative. The "patio" room had a lovely view. The recommended local wine was fantastic and the food was uniformly excellent from appetizers through desserts.
