“#best#bagels and otherwise oasis!!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

on via Ginori, just north of San Lorenzo is Snack Bar Anna. Owners Anna Maria and Stefano are friendly, wonderful and they genuinely enjoy their clientele, even the pestiest tourist. Anna makes sandwiches to order with fresh and delicious ingredients with a choice of several kinds of breads, including their fabulous homemade bagels--yes, BAGELS!! The cappuccino is delicious, and they are happy to make jumbo cups of coffee, iced coffee, etc, for the usual American take-away. There is a cozy back room with free wifi, and there is no charge to sit and eat. Later in the day, the Snack Bar becomes an "after work" place where you can drink a glass of local wine, sip a beer, or chill with a big spritz. When Florence gets crazy, come here for a respite of wonderfulness.

“Simply The best”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

Snackbar Anna is The best place to have lunch, snacks and drinks! This is one of the hidden gems in the city where you can enjoy bagels and great panini! Anna and Stefano are very friendly and always in for small talk! From the moment I arrived in Florence i fall in love with Thuis place!

“for all american friends: best bagle in the world!!!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

atmosphere, high quality of sandwich and BAGLES,good beer, good drink's, Steve, Anna & all bar's friends: if you came in Firenze, you can't go at to Snack Bar Anna. The best bar in Florence!!
Se venite a Firenze non potete non passare allo Snack Bar Anna: divertimento, ottimi panini e soprattutto beagles che, di così buoni, non ho mangiato nemmeno in America. Verso le 18 si "scalda" l'ambiente ed inizia il divertimento: BISOGNA PROVARE PER CREDERE
Thanks Anna & Steve

“Anna & Stefano serve up GREAT food on a side street in Florence!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

My daughter and friends frequent Snack Shop Anna in Via di Genori several times a week as do countless more foreign students, local people, and tourists who wander in. We planned a visit before we even landed in Firenze after hearing how great the food and how wonderful the people and the vibe are.

We enjoyed fantastic sandwiches and a great atmosphere during our visit! That the owner & manager know my daughter and her favorite sanwich was a bonus. Stefano spotted my girl coming down the street and shouted, "Bongiorno, Angel Rose!" from behind the bar. Anna stopped her work and took time to chat with us.

Owner/sandwich wizard Anna turns out countless delicious options amidst the dozens of locals standing for their espresso and sandwiches and after we were introduced and ordered our lunch we jostled our way into the small dining room and communal tables along with a bunch of diners. It was great food, great fun and I only wish we'd had time to go again!

I had fried eggplant, Buffalo mozz, pesto, and basil leaves on a whole wheat roll warmed on the press. One of the best meals in a week of truly great dining!

On the walls of the dining room are art by locals, postcards, photos and letters from patrons around the world who have enjoyed the menu. Flyers for local events. Cards and photos of several brides and grooms who stopped in on their special day to snap a shot w/Stefano & Anna. It is a place that makes for loyalty through some of the best food in Florence, friendliness, and charming service! Stop in, rub elbows w/the locals and meet Anna & Stefano for a delightful snap shot of Florence!

Anna & Stefano, la ringrazio per la più deliziosa che abbiamo mangiato a Firenze!

“Great coffee, even better bagels, with a cosy setting out back”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Looks like any other convenience store/bar in Florence, but some great quality coffee, reasonable prices and a funky little room out back to relax in really make it special.

Grab a bagel, get a password for the wifi, and escape the hustle and bustle of the markets right here.
