This chic café is located in Palermo Botanico, and is a sophisticated spot for a coffee and meal without breaking the bank. From frittatas and salads to granola or pastries, there’s something for everyone, and don’t forget the coffee or a glass of fresh OJ.

Magdalena’s Party

This café/restaurant/bar wears many hats but wears them all well. After a long night, head here for the hangover breakfast that dreams are made of. American style pancakes, breakfast burritos, and a bacon/egg/cheese bagel sandwich are served up every day of the week, and weekends see the addition of bagels with lox, French toast, a full American breakfast, and steak and eggs. Did we mention the Bloody Mary?
