Very nice tiramisu, great coffee! Bit of issues with a very small order, both bartender and waitress got confused, but we weren't easy, to be fair

My husband and I visited Barnum for breakfast and I must say the coffee and pastries were very nice...but that's about it. I think it probably comes into its own in the evenings, when it becomes a cocktail bar. It definitely has a hipster vibe to it.

We enjoyed a very nice meal (carbonara and a tart with spinach and ricotta) there, in a very relaxing atmosphere. They had a great selection of cakes too which we didn't try, so we are going back for sure!

Great little coffee shop with awesome cappuccino. They also had a really good selection of cocktails and craft beers, but i sadly didn't get one. Awesome staff that pointed out 3 more things we could see with our day since it was already late afternoon.

I'm from Rome and love cocktails. I also love eating well. This place has two great bar tenders and makes ALL their own food (bread included), changing the menu often and with original ideas that surprise the tourist as well and repeating customer. Come for breakfast and they have the best cappuccino in town .... certainly in the touristy trap... More

A wonderful, charming and welcoming cafe. Perfect for an afternoon aperitif or an evening supper. Matteo and his colleagues are a fantastic team.. Always willing to to suggest a plate or drink. We can't think of a better place to pass a couple of hours.

Stumbled across this bar after a long day walking around sightseeing. Great place, great atmosphere and very relaxed. Perfect for a drink and recuperation. A glass of wine was 5 euros which was a fair price considering other Rome bars. Recommended.

Thank Chris T

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
