Caffè Gilli - in our opinion is one of the best places to have a coffee in Florence. Centrally located - in Piazza della Repubblica - this historic and beautiful bar pulls a proper espresso, and its cases of baked goods and sweets will satisfy any craving.
Our go-to order is a macchiato (espresso with a kiss of foamed milk) and cornetto con crema (a flaky croissant filled with a delicate cream). Trust us on this one!
In Italy, always sip your coffee and eat your pastry standing at the bar like the locals do. If you opt for table service, be prepared to pay several times more than you would otherwise.
