Caffé Scudieri is an institution in the city. Located at the corner of Via dei Cerretani, the café and its dehors overlook the breathtaking panorama of Piazza del Duomo and in particular the Baptistery of San Giovanni. The interiors are the synonym of luxury itself: marble, leather and crystal chandeliers. Already its sober showcase, with cantucci, bottles of vin santo, cakes, cassate and other patisserie creations, will make you understand what to expect inside.
You can stop by Scudieri for every occasion, from breakfast to aperitif, passing through lunch. The keyword that binds together all the moments in the life of the café, so well inserted in the beating heart of the city, is quality. The best experience is that of the true Florentine: take a coffee at the counter (but also the cappuccinos are delicious) accompanied by a dessert, then dive back into the whirlwind of the city crowd.
The main pleasure is to enjoy a small relaxing break en passant surrounded by the beauty of the surrounding scenery. Tea, for example, signed by the Florentine house “La Via del Tè” is served with biscuits or delicious rice pudding, or at lunch, when you will find a complete menu that also includes pizzas and inserts traditional Tuscan elements in a selection of “classic” dishes like spaghetti alla carbonara, beef burger and salmon fillet.
Behind the counter you won’t find only sweets, cakes and pastries, but also savory specialties, continental breakfasts and many sandwiches. If you want to give a gift, then, your desserts will be packaged in elegant cream-colored boxes closed by a shiny ribbon, nothing better to give a touch of sophistication at the time of dessert. During the summer it’s beautiful to sit outside and enjoy the spectacle of the square that gradually comes alive with lights. In short, Scudieri is part of all those sparkling cafes that offer an elegant and refined service in the most beautiful squares in Italy. And it’s difficult to find more beautiful squares in Italy than that of Santa Maria del Fiore.
