This really was a great place a little tricky to find the entrance sign points to a bookshop but worth it as it is really a quite haven and the chanti is supper nice

This is a place to go for a coffee break more so than lunch. The food was fine, but many places offer better and more selection. But it is the beautiful setting that won me over. The cafe is set in the cloister of a 16th century monastery, designed by Bramante. It overlooks an interior courtyard. It is the cafeteria of the museum of the same name, which we did not visit. It offers a surprisingly serene and reflective spot, just seconds from one of Rome's busiest piazzas.

As all the outside tables at nearby Caffè della Pace were taken, we luckily decided to visit this lovely courtyard for an afternoon drink. Great to view the Raphael fresco through the lounge window, I love when I can experience great art without a lot of effort! We sat at one of the outside tables tucked away from the buzzling streets and well protected from the sudden rain. I regret not buying anything from the cute shop, will do that next time!

This café has long been a favourite of mine. Where else can you enjoy a cup of coffee surrounded by a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture! The cloister was designed by Donato Bramante in 1504, his first project in the Eternal City. Bramante's compatriot, Raphael, arrived in Rome a few years later and his frescoes in the adjacent church of Santa Maria della Pace can be viewed from the café's lounge.

The café's decor is ultra-modern, which, I think, works remarkably well with the Renaissance architecture.

My only pique is that, for some inexplicable reason, the café no longer provides free Wi-Fi.

Sitting in one of the little stone nooks overlooking the cloister is delightful. Be sure to go into the lounge for the window that allows a peek of the frescoed walls of adjoining church (that is hard to get into due to limited hours of access).
