I had a delicious slice of Sachertorte and a tasty hot chocolate for a break. Friendly staff and XIX century location.

Friendly staff and nice view to the harbour. After a morning visit to Trieste and a snack for lunch it was very nice to relax before driving to Rovinj.

Classic old Trieste style in both decor and service. Bar is well stocked to offer all coctails and wines (Luc made me a great martini!) and the food lives up to the setting. Pleasant outdoor tables as well as inside....enjoyable from morning coffee to evening...More

Average food combinated with unpolite weitress who speaks poor italian is enaugh to skip this place. The only bright spot was another weitress, young and kind, who seems to be lower ranged comparing to the dominant, rude one.

7 people should sit at 1 table in empty restaurant. Finally managed to use 2. Cafe is nice! Location is ok.

Ok so this place is near a main drag, but just go inside and it’s grand. Excellent service and. No question was too much. My Campari Spritz was perfect and the follow up coffee hit the spot. Highly recommended

Good food. Generous portions. Nice atmosphere. Everything to be a great place but... Service is awful. Snob and rude attendants ruin the experience.

A charming place of historic note, with good service (by Sara today). Generous hosts. With our drinks there arrived many free snacks for our enjoyment. A very nice cafe from a bygone era that is still very current in its appeal.

Had breakfast, lunch and a couple of hot drinks here over the course of three hours and never felt pressured to order. Lovely ambience, great if you're looking to just sit down and read for a few hours.

Old style cafe which still lives in past. Very snobbish and ignorant service. Food is very plain and over priced. Their is much more better places around the corner.
