ELSA COFFEE, VIA GIOSUÈ CARDUCCI 26-30, 00187 ROMA

It is interesting how many cafes there are here in in Rome. Literally on every corner. That’s the thing here, I walked out of one café, and had a few minutes to spare before having to rush where I was going, and I had only had one coffee, so I could stomach another one. I walk out of the Cerulli Caffè in the Sallustiano neighborhood and literally less than 30 feet away I see this other place, the Elsa Coffee café. It looks new, it looks modern, it looks international, and it looks inviting.

GRAN CAFFÈ SALANDRA, VIA ANTONIO SALANDRA 36-38, 00187 ROMA

Still in the Sallustiano neighborhood of Rome, and a bit more than a street away from the Ministry of Economy and Finance you have the Gran Caffè Salandra. It’s an old school place. Lots of chocolates, pastries, and an air of 65 and over type of joint for those who want a touch of not over the top snobbery, but simply dignified clean and some what old-fashioned setting. Either way, it’s staff of all women really had the place rocking. Most cafes here in Rome are run buy angry baristas, all guys depressed with life and angry at their profession. When women tend to run bars, they’re happy, and simply having a good time. How’s that for being sexist? Well… I’m not making this crud up!
