Fodor's Review

The most famous coffeehouse in town is the Caffè Gambrinus, catercorner to the Palazzo Reale across the Piazza Trieste e Trento. Founded in 1850, this 19th-century jewel functioned as a brilliant intellectual salon in its heyday but has unfortunately fallen into a Sunset Boulevard–type existence, relying on past glamour, at the mercy of tourists and their pitiless cameras, and with at times indifferent service. However, the renovation and reopening of some of its long-closed inside rooms, replete with amazing mirrored walls and gilded ceilings, makes it an essential stop for any visitor to the city. Have a coffee and a chocolate or a pastry, and soak up the grandeur and the history.
