This was my favorite cafe on my recent trip to Trieste. The place is very comfortable, with lots of locals playing checkers, engaging in conversation, reading or drinking coffee or a glass of wine. I found the staff to be quite friendly and fluent enough...More

Lovely atmosphere, reminiscent of a Viennese cafe, equally nice for a drink, staff friendly, lunch menu not wonderful for veggies but it a traditional cafe. A must, especially if your on the Joyce trail.

Historic cafe with book store at the rear. The coffee is superb and the atmosphere is great. You can sit and write letters or read a book and absorb the eclectic atmosphere.
