Seems to be used by locals more than tourists - which is excellent. Told that it is to close for a supermarket. A shame since the food here is basic wholesome and cheap, surrounded by rip off places.

Closed this year on October 1st - wew were there on it's last day - to make way for a supermarket, so I'm told - a sad loss for the budget savvy visitor. Where to go now for good value honest to goodness food?

Decent food, reasonable prices, quick service, a pleasant place to rest a while. The front room is a cafe but if you walk through to the back, you will be in the cafeteria. We found the wait staff to be particularly nice. This is where...More

We've been to Brek on previous visits to Venice. I enjoyed the food so much we have been back every time. The style is plain and simple with lots of vegetarian choice for lunch and dinner. It's the cheapest place we've found that has fresh...More

This bar/ristorante is located near the train station. On our arrival to Venice, we had a lovely breakfast in the bar - fresh and warm pastries and a filling slice of pizza for kids. In the afternoon, on our way back to the train station,...More

Brek doesn't look much from the street but go in for a lunchtime salad or meal and you'll get excellent food at a very reasonable price.

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
