We had breakfast here every morning we could while in Rome. Their croissants are wonderful and their coffee is top notch. I couldn't get enough iced cappuccinos!

During our trip to Rome, we visited several caffes but the one, where we were coming back everytime, was Barnum Cafe. They offer delicious dishes throughout the day (especially breakfast is yummy) and mix refreshing drinks. If you thought this is all, it is not, they serve one of the best coffees in Rome, also the stuff is unbelievably cool. Wanna come back... and enjoy the atmosphere in Barnum Cafe. Frankly, I have not noticed anything disturbing, hence 5*.

The strategy of this cocktail bar is to offer great cocktails at a price that is reasonable. This is coupled with an atmosphere that is casual without pretense (think Old Fashioned Bar - Barcelona). We have been fortunate to frequent craft cocktail bars in many different cities and in different countries and Manuel crafts his cocktails with care and pride and they are hands down the best. So, you don't have to call in advance nor do you need a secret code or go through a secret entrance (remember their strategy). I am not opposed to any of that but given the choice for great drinks minus the extra work to get it I will take the great drinks. When in Rome we will be back and try their Barnum burger.

Hands down the best place to have breakfast, lunch or aperitivo in Roma!! The barista there made us delicious cappuccinos (finally someone who doesn't burn the milk!!) and cute latte art! The whole staff was friendly and there was a generally good atmosphere in that cafe. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Rome! Also surprisingly the staff speaks very good English! Really cool place and amazing food!

Barnum cafe offered a great selection of pastries including a vegan crossaint which was very tasty. The coffee was smooth and would bring me back here again.
