Don’t get me wrong, outstanding location and history but I flat out to refuse to pay €30 euros for some egg/salmon/ham etc on an English muffin or nearly €7 for a coffee. Absolutely laughable.

We called in on a very warm day with our 4 and 6 year old to take a break from the heat. The staff could not have been friendlier and made the children welcome with some colouring while we waited. The selection of teas, cakes,...More

Babington's Tea Room is a classic place right in the center of Rome (next to the Spanish stairs). They have got great teas, but the cakes and the service is so and so.

Across the street from a store like Prada, it's not surprising that prices might be higher than you're used to. However, the choice of tea is extensive and for €10-15,- you're good for 3-4 cups per person.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
