I am often asked: which is the best café in Rome? The answer might depend on the season, the weather, the company, your mood, the location, but ultimately the deciding factor has to be the quality of what you are imbibing. There is also ambience. Café Sant Eustachio, at the rear end of Piazza Novana, is not a place where you sit. It’s in, grab a caffe lungo, and depart. This is my brother lounging with a smile on his face: we had just escaped a Roman shower – torrid, but brief. If you want to linger, I’d recommend the incomparable Antigua Tazza D’Oro Coffee House, a stone’s throw from the Pantheon.
