$ Esquilino Bakery

Opened in 1929, this nearly century-old spot is one of Rome's best bakeries and sells both sweet and savory baked goods, including over 70 types of bread. Line up for the pizza al taglio (by the slice) at lunchtime or sit down at one of the outdoor tables for a cappuccino and cornetto or an aperitivo replete with mini sandwiches made on homemade buns. There's also a small location inside Termini station where you can grab a quick espresso on the way to catch a train.
