Trip Report Venice - Coffee in the Piazza at Quadri's - cost thereof.

Jump to last reply

A trip report of sorts - although we did not go anywhere out of the usual.

If you sit at any of the cafes in the Piazza - Florians, Quadri, wherever - you'll see people take a seat, be presented with a menu, peruse said menu - and then walk away. It's a bit embarrassing, maybe, and the waiters have slightly pursed lips when that happens. The fact is that those places are not cheap.

So here's a little price guide, from Quadri a couple of days ago.

Quadri's "orchestra" was playing - the inverted commas around "orchestra" are quite deliberate, as the music is pretty bad - so there is a six euro cover charge per person on top of any other charge.

A coffee - americano, cappuccino, or latte-free cappuccino (which has a slug of almond milk froth, and is quite good) will cost nine euro. So all up, fifteen euro for that coffee, which does sound costly.

However, once you order that coffee, you've paid table rent for a great show. The music plays, people stroll through, maybe a wedding party walks past, maybe some street theatre, you can play a game of "pick the nationality" (stainless steel dentures = former USSR), and so on. One of the great shows on earth, in Europe's drawing rom, for only fifteen euro. Stay as long as you like - we relaxed there for an hour and a half.

That's a steal.
