“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
— Alfred Stieglitz
Food. Is one of the most important things while travelling. One of my favourite things to do while I explore a new city is to escape from tourists and crowded places to a small restaurant or cafe filled with locals.
To sit outside in a small alley, listen to people talking in their language and watching people passing by. Rushing through busy streets and visiting touristy places can exhaust every person and we often forget to stop and admire small things. It’s important to find a balance and while you want to tick all “must-see” places it’s also important to experience ‘living like a local’.
I’ve prepared this Florence Food Guided based on places I’ve visited on my latest trip. Hope you’ll find it helpful.

2. Caffè del Verone // Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, 13, 50121 Firenze FI, Italy
When I first read about this place I was sure it will be super crowded, but it wasn’t at all! I’ve enjoyed some delicious coffee & cream croissant with a beautiful view on Florence.
4. La Ménagère // Via de’ Ginori, 8/R, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy
This place! I’ve been in Florence for 5 days and went there 5 times. Hands down the most beautiful restaurant I’ve been to so far. Even though the staff is super busy and forget about you I absolutely understand with the amount of people there.
3. Caffè della Galleria //Piazza de’ Pitti, 20R, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy
Quick stop for a coffee. This Caffe was locate very close to the Piazza de’Pitti so if you are looking for a spot to relax before of after visiting a museum this is a great place.
5. Babae // Via Santo Spirito, 21R, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy
Cannot comment on the food in this place as I stopped only for a quick glass of wine, but the overall atmosphere of the place was really nice.
