This is a great place to stop and have a quick breakfast of cappuccino and brioche. There is no cover charge for the use of the table. There is a large variety of brioche to choose from. The staff is very nice. Service is quick....More

The prices are amazingly cheap but really you get what you pay for. Wine, coffee and beer cheapest in Venice. OK for a fuel stop on a busy schedule. Good place to eat on a budget.

First, the good news: very cheap. Had pasta, roll, bottle of water, dessert for €8.80. Now the bad: by 8 p.m. they were out of all pasta options but two, pasta barely warm. Very noisy, lots of teenagers. Just okay overall.

If all you need is a quick plate of food to keep you going Brek fits the bill perfectly. It's not for a romantic night out or any special occasion - there are plenty of other places in Venice for that - but when all...More

Zero welcome, most miserable staff in the world although the guy at the till was ok and managed to say a few words. Pasta had too much oil and no salt. I hadn't finished eating yet and the cleaner came to spray the table around...More

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby

Hi Sara, Brek in Venice is a full-on Bar & restaurant, and I know they cater for most visitors' needs. We were able to sit down and enjoy. Hope this helps. Sal
There are gluten free options? I think it´s no possible but I prefer to ask you
