Le Vespe Café

Cafe in Santa Croce

A particular favourite with Florence's vegetarian and vegan crowd, this retro-fashioned cafe in Santa Croce is a hipster spot to hang out over freshly squeezed juices and cleansing green smoothies, ginger-spiced spinach bread and fabulous weekend brunches. The pocket-sized street terrace gets crammed and a constant queue marks the entrance.

If you wake up with a Sunday-morning yearning for fried eggs in various guises, homemade granola or a serious Fully Monty fry-up, this is the address.
