Best Cafes in Rome

081 CAFÈ, VIA MERULANA 83, 00185 ROMA

Walking away or towards San Giovanni on the Via Merulana, this ancient route of Rome, you’ll have to grapple with the crazy traffic that chokes this avenue. And then you’ll have to pay attention to find this place. It’s called 081 Cafè and makes reference to Naples. It’s literally a hole in the wall, just a door and nothing else. But what might catch your attention, is the little stool outside and then, a big piece of wood with a La Pavoni little home lever machine at the entrance.

 

CAFFÈ ET CAFFÈ, PIAZZA SANT’EUSTACHIO 50, 00186 ROMA

Well, if you’re a tourist to Rome and inevitably going to have to pass through the right of initiation with quenching your curiosity and going to Caffè Sant’Eustachio, there’s good news in store for you. I had, like many folk, gone to this legendary café. But always left a little disappointed. After doing my review of this place I realized that I don’t like it at all, and it’s too much hype. But why be happy now? We’ll just across the street from it, there’s a rickety looking place that is quite non descript, except that it looks like any standard mid 2000s hodpodge Roman café and it’s called Caffè e Caffè.
