La Casa del Caffè Tazza d’Oro

Coffee in Centro Storico

A busy, stand-up affair with burnished 1940s fittings, this is one of Rome's best coffee houses. Its espresso hits the mark nicely and there's a range of delicious coffee concoctions, including a cooling granita di caffè, a crushed-ice coffee drink served with whipped cream. There's also a small shop and, outside, a coffee bancomat for those out-of-hours caffeine emergencies.
