Having opened its doors in 1920, this old cafe was once a milk shop authorized to "mix coffee and milk" in a former butcher shop dating to 1840. The shelves, hooks, counter and marble walls and floor date to the original butchery. In 1984, a new owner, Vanna Casati, began serving classic Italian-style breakfast with bowls of caffè latte, bread, butter, marmalade and homemade cakes and pastries. The cafe still serves as the local milk shop, but has also become a destination for many thanks to its excellent organic, vegetarian products and lovely atmosphere, including students and faculty from the nearby University of Florence literature department.
