While waiting for our tour to start in Firenze, or Florence as we know it in the states, we found Caffe Scudieri on the Piazza del Duomo. The Cafe served here, or rather espresso as we know it is smooth, hardly any bitterness at all. I had one of the best cappuccinos I’ve ever had in my life here and it’s no wonder why the locals seem to come here as much as the tourists. It’s a classy room and worth noting that there is a surcharge for a table of at least 2 euros. If you’re just coming in for a cafe, stand at the bar.
