A caffe to write home about…

With 150 years of service to Napoli’s literary elite (and countless tourists), Gran Caffe Gambrinus is a Neapolitan institution. A combination of the perfect location and a history as rich as its coffee make it an unmissable treat on a visit to the city.

Located on the famous Piazza Triste e Trento, the large interior space is famed for its sumptuous features that capture the spirit of the Belle Epoque with statues and a pretty glitzy ceiling. Popular in the past with writers and philosphers – among them Oscar Wilde – the Caffe today is still a meeting place for literary types whose conversations make for good eavesdropping!

Needless to say the coffee’s pretty good – they boast the best espresso in Napoli – served in posh china cups by nattily-dressed baristas and waiters. On a sunny day you can’t beat people watching from under the Gran Caffe Gambrinus awnings al fresco. Even if you have to pay a bit more for the experience, there‘s no cooler place in Napoli to kick back and relax – although that said, Rossopomodoro’s nearby!
