As per true Italian tradition, the best way to start the day or finish a meal is to drink a good espresso. If you are in Rome, a city steeped in history, you need a special place for your breakfast that helps to tell the story of Rome.
Just a few steps from the Pantheon, you can find one of the oldest cafes in Rome, Sant'Eustacchio il Caffè. Here, the coffee has such a strong tradition that they have created actual ‘recipes’ for any espresso. My advice is to taste the ‘Gran Caffè’, a classic for espresso lovers.
(Just note that here the coffee is sweetened directly during the preparation, so if you prefer coffee without sugar, remember to ask for it when placing your order).

In addition to enjoying one of the best coffees in Rome, you can also find excellent desserts for breakfast here.
