I came to this ice cream shop on the recommendation of Lorenzo de Medici, ve said in his guide to Florence th ice-cream shop in town. I struggled to find it because it is off the usual tourist streets and one side opens onto a square. It's a bit far, but as the city is not very big you can walk there in 10-15 minutes. If it weren't so famous, only Florentines would go there and although foreigners come by chance (at least outside of the summer), the employees still smile when they see us look on at the many flavors. The décor is very classical, with pictures showing the most typical sights of Florence. Upon arrival, you must pay the owner, ve is sitting in front of an old cash register. Already with the ticket in your hand, you can then visit the exhibitor and ask the waitress for your favorite flavor or flavors. Tables are available to customers at no extra cost. If you can't decide, it is better to go with the milky ice-cream, which is less cold and the most different to those you find in Spain. Without doubt, the tiramisu and meringue are amazing!
This cafe in the Via Rondinelli caught our attention. It's simple and elegant, and we decided to stop here to try some of the tasty treats they have on offer. Sweet bread, baguettes, fruit cakes, croissants, etc ... my friends had some delicious tea, and had a coffee. The crockery was white porcelain, with woven wicker baskets. I don't remember exactly how much it cost, but we really enjoyed it, and breakfast was exquisite. The place is open until 8 pm and serves simple and nice lunches, salads, pies, homemade cakes and sandwiches of all kinds.
This cafe was just below the building where we were staying. The owner lived in the same building as us, and everything that he prepared was a delight. Meat lasagna with tomato sauce, ham sandwiches, toasted baguette stuffed with ham, mozzarella, lettuce and tomato, delicious ice cream, homemade desserts, fruit juices, coffee...sometimes we ate on the small terrace, but usually we sat inside the restaurant, where the service is fantastic.
