Visited Caffe Vergnano on recommendation by my Italian friend for their good coffee. Had their The Whole Nine Yards all-day breakfast with signature Iced Caffe Gianduja which were great. The atmosphere is quiet and it’s a great place to chill and do your work.
I enjoyed the coffee served at the cafe. It's worth a visit! Rather quiet on the weekend that we were there, ideal for conversations! The staff were not so friendly though.
Good and glassy, nice food and drinks. Friendly atmosphere. Polite staff. Will come back again. Good place to chill on a weekend and watch the world go by
A nice place for a quiet afternoon coffee or hot chocolate in the bustling city! The food is good and the ambience is nice. Staff are also very helpful.
Coffee is good! And I love the cosy place. But just a bit too small internal seating area. Some cooler for outside areas will be useful especially on a hot day.
The hot caffe gianduja was nice and rich. The place was not quiet but comfy enough to enjoy a drink. Indoor and outdoor seats are available. Service was prompt.
I like my cappuccino there. Nice airy environment, cake selection was alright. It’s a free seating place although I made a reservation with quandoo. Would go again for coffee if I’m around there.
Place was clean and comfortable. Perfect on a friday afternoon. Happy hour goes on from 3pm which is great. Cakes could have a wider selection.
The food was good.but the delivery of the food took 30 mins for 2 plates of pan seared salmon. Really? Well it is a good place to chill but to catch your lunch, it is better to go elsewhere.
nice coffee and chocolate. no waiting times on a Saturday afternoon.
