    One of the best places to get coffee in Rome. Italian coffee is usually not sitting and hanging out in the cafe. Drink it at the bar quickly and move out! :) Interior at this cafe is quite charming. Located in the heart of Rome, in front of the Senato della Repubblica palace, it is just a few steps away from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon.

    This is what espresso in Heaven must taste like! All of the hype you've heard is 100% true -- this is without question the single best cup of espresso I have ever had in the world. Yes, the world's best. If you love coffee, make this your first stop in Rome. I literally shed tears in the street on my last night in town, that's how much I miss this coffee. I had about 14 espressos here during my weeklong trip.

    If you show up later at night, it won't be as crazy (they are open until 1 am most nights, which in itself is worth a star). Try to go in mid-afternoon and it is complete and utter chaos! Go to the register and pay. Take your receipt to the bar (easier said than done). You will have to elbow your way up to the front and be prepared to wait! If you plunk your receipt down on the counter with a little incentive (a 20 cent Euro coin seems to do the trick), you might get ahead of everyone else. Seriously, ordering here is NOT for the faint of heart. You must have patience and you have to be a bit tough!

    My husband, who is NOT a coffee drinker, ordered a couple of the 'nom nom' drinks and they were phenomenal as well. He had a hot chocolate type drink with whipped cream on top and a classic cappuccino. Both were amazing. And the espresso -- oh my! I don't know how they get the crema SO frothy and thick but it's insanely good. Do as the locals do and take your spoon to dig out the last bits of creamy goodness after you shoot your espresso while standing at the bar.

    The little 1 Euro pastries here are good too; the mini croissant looking things are the perfect marriage with their coffee. I love the ones stuffed with chocolate; they are crunchy, not soft as you would assume. I cannot stress this highly enough -- order EVERYTHING you could possibly want while you are at the register. Go ahead and order TWO espressos, you will not be sorry.

    And remember, you MUST order your coffee without sugar if you don't want sugar. All drinks automatically come sweetened unless you specify at the counter. And don't sit down at one of the outdoor tables unless you really, really want to -- you will pay (a lot) for the privilege. Stand at the bar, it's free.
