Torrefazione Cannaregio

Top choice cafe in Cannaregio

Venetians can't catch a train without a pit stop at this aromatic shopfront lined with brass-knobbed coffee bins. Since 1930, Venice's Marchi family has been importing speciality beans, roasted fresh daily in a washtub-size roaster behind the marble bar and ground to order. Service is as perky and efficient as you'd hope from such a well-caffeinated place.
