Honoré de Balzac

This coffee falls into your stomach, and straightway there is a general commotion. Ideas begin to move like the battalions of the Grand Army of the battlefield, and the battle takes place. Things remembered arrive at full gallop, ensuing to the wind. The light cavalry of comparisons deliver a magnificent deploying charge, the artillery of logic hurry up with their train and ammunition, the shafts of wit start up like sharpshooters. Similes arise, the paper is covered with ink; for the struggle commences and is concluded with torrents of black water, just as a battle with powder.

If you, as Honoré de Balzac, cannot live without this sublime drink, this is the moment to discover where are the best coffee shops in Rome.

You know how much the Italians are fond to this precious drink, for all the tourists coming here I have picked up a list of the best Roman cafe.

find A cheap flight right now!

Caffè Sant'Eustachio

Considered by many as the best coffee you can ever taste in Rome. The coffee served by the Sant'Eustachio rigorously derives from a secret brew.

The place is not very big, there are two counters, and when the weather is good, there are few tables outside.

If you don't know which coffee to taste, don't hesitate and ask for a "Gran Caffè," and keep in mind that it will already be served with sugar, if you don't want it, just remember to ask the barkeeper not to put the sugar.

Before you go any further, keep in mind that the plug adapters in Italy are different than most of the plug adapters used around the world so make sure to get one. A cheaper one like this will do its work

La Casa del Caffè Tazza d'Oro

Near the Pantheon, there is the first competitor of the Sant'Eustachio: La Casa del Caffè Tazza d'Oro. The cafe is always full of people every minute of the day.

I warmly suggest you try at least once the famous coffee snow cone with double whipped, a real high-calorie bomb.

If you want, here you can also buy the best mixtures of coffee.

Castroni

Entering in a Castroni shop is like being invaded by an explosion of perfumes and colors of old times. The coffee's aroma is obviously the king.

Castroni is perhaps the most famous grocery store in Rome, since 1932. Absolutely to try a cup of coffee at the counter, sublime and balanced.

A perfect gift for you or your friends will be a box of coffee beans. You will bring at home the whole intense perfume experimented in the shop.

Antico Caffè della Pace

The Antico Caffè della Pace is a historic coffee shop. It exists since the XVIII Century. With time, it has become the place of meeting of many artists.

Inside you'll find a vintage design: beautiful the old cash drawer.

The outside is surrounded by the ivy that covers the boundaries of this building.

At the Antico Caffè, you won't find only coffee, but also food, cocktail, and cakes.

In the evening there is also a musical accompaniment.
