Good selection of teas, nice desserts ... but very cramped space. The service was also quite slow. The teas are also a bit pricey ...but I must say the green tea I had was excellent.

Supposed to open at 11. Waited until 11.40 and the guy inside tells me he will open "in about ten minutes " Tea is served cool usually, pastries are bad and service mediocre.

Maybe it is part of the French theme. Stick to the tea. The croissant was so bad we could not eat it. Got charged for it anyway. Staff could be replaced... More

This little cafe in one of the most beautiful buildings in Roma is across the street from Casa Lamm and adjacent to some very chic little shops in a neighborhood which is in the process of becoming gentrified. A lovely place to select teas from their extensive selection to take home or to stop and sip one in the small... More
