5 tea room in Florence for a wonderful afternoon

Are you in Florence and in need of an afternoon break between visiting a wonderful museum and an enchanted garden? In the cold months, there is nothing better than a small and cosy place where you can indulge in delicious pastries and a steaming cup of tea or coffee.


Here is the list of the 5 places where you should spend an afternoon, if you want to try a fantastic Florentine tearoom!

La Via del Tè (The Tea Street) is a British-style tearoom, where comfortable armchairs are waiting for you. There you can choose among an incredibly wide range of delicious, hot or cold teas, which are always served with pastries and traditional butter biscuits.

For those of you who love the oriental atmosphere, you cannot miss Derb, a tearoom located in via Faenza. It is a place which took inspiration from Morocco: teas with strong and unique aromas are served in a cosy and friendly atmosphere, where you can often stumble upon a contemporary art exhibition.

La Latteria (The Milk Shop) is a really original café: going inside it is like leaving Florence and going into a mountain resort. Homemade cakes, exquisite drinks, and an easygoing approach will lead you through a unique experience.

The Picteau Lounge Bar at the Hotel Lungarno is another necessary stop. It owes its name “Picteau” to the original art pieces of Picasso and Cocteau that complement the atmosphere of this delightful bar. Here you can have a sweet break by choosing among hundreds of teas and infusions, selected by the Officina Santa Maria Novella.

Last but not least, the Teatro dell’Ozio (The Idle Theatre) is a café which combines the Occitan style to the haute patisserie. It is a mixture between a shop, a tearoom, and a chocolate café where all temptations of gluttony are allowed.
