Many, many tables, great food, good coffee and a relaxed atmosphere. If you get anything to eat or to drink, you’re more than welcome to stay for the whole day. Possibly one of the coolest university bookshop-cafés in the world.

Arnold’s Coffee

Even though italian cafés are awesome, there is one time you’re really thankful for the “American coffee experience”: when you need a reliable and quick wi-fi connection. In Florence’s city centre, that means Arnold’s.

You’ll find this quiet oasis on the South side of the river, off the beaten path. A great food and drink selection, working wifi and cool decoration. It’s not the cheapest café in Florence, but it’s definitely one of the coolest.

La Cité

This is one of the best places to admire the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral while sitting and enjoying an italian espresso. Located on the second floor of the Library – Biblioteca delle Oblate – the Caffetteria is open everyday and also works as a restaurant.


Designed to eat and read, Brac is both a contemporary art library and a café-restaurant. Menu is mostly vegetarian and vegan. It is open everyday from midday to midnight, within 4 minutes walking from the Florence Cathedral.

Caffe Letterario Le Murate

The former prison of Florence is now a place where you can study all day, every day. Start with a low cost breakfast – students only. Have some lunch and even a buffet aperitivo by the end of the afternoon. Enjoy the tables and benches outside in the large patio, it is definitely a favourite spot of Firenze’s students.
