Coffee with a view!
The Giardino Bardini is an English garden located in the Oltrarno area and can be accessed with the same ticket as Boboli gardens. It's somewhat difficult to find, because the signs take you through the parking lot and out onto the street, where the directions disappear. However, it's a cozy garden and, with it being so remote, it's practically empty. Of all the sights, the best is the Belvedere and its cafeteria because of its breathtaking views of the city. Having a coffee while admiring the scenery in one of the few remaining tourist-free strongholds in Florence is priceless.
