Going to Rome - where should I go for espresso?

Talk about your favorite cafes, local barista events, or plan your own get-together.

Hi all,
We are going to Rome this summer and will be staying in the Spanish Steps district. Any recommendations for cafes?

Tazzo d'Oro was our favorite.
Sant Eustachio Is just on the other side of the Parthenon, Good but not as good.

But the thing you can't miss is Roscoli for some Roman Pizza. Not too far from there as well. Also, right by Roscoli are two very cute leather shops that make some cool stuff in their shops.

Check out Er Cafetierre in Monti. Best espresso I had in Rome. While you are in the neighborhood go get some gelato at Fata Morgana.

I like Bar Farnese, 20 Via de' Baullari. When I've been there I saw all locals in the bar, but I'm sure that's not always the case as it's near the very touristy Campo de Fiori.

Tazzo D'oro and Caffé Greco are really good. Caffé Greco is a 1 minute walk from the Spanish steps.

Thanks Erik! Funny you posted this as I just returned from Tazzo D'oro - had a fantastic double shot and am planning on returning tomorrow morning.

Have a nice itme. Rome is a beautiful city to visit. If you haven't been to the Colloseum yet and want to first visit the Forum and buy a combination ticket. There's no lines at the forum and a very large line at the Colloseum which you can skip if you already have a ticket from the Forum.

By chance, went to Sant Eustachio two weeks ago while in Rome. The espresso was good but not great (and it had an extraordinary amount of crema), but the frozen coffee granita was fabulous on a hot day! Came home with a nice souvenir.
