Coffees are great (as always in Italy), and they have a wide selection of cakes and sandwiches. Nothing extra, but if you need a classic café, it is.

This is a nice place to stop by and have an espresso. It has a convenience store next to it which can be helpful when you are out and about. The coffee and the ambiance is good. Good place to recharge.

We had a light lunch here upon first arriving in Bologna. It was close to our B&B and was on the way towards the main city square. We ordered pasta and a panini, both were very good. Had a great time chatting with fellow travelers...More
