Try the “Caffè degli Specchi”, found in the beautiful Piazza Unità d’Italia facing the sea, take a seat at a table in the square and enjoy the view.
The Caffè Tommaseopreserves the atmosphere of a typical Viennese coffee room and was the favourite meeting place of several artists and writers of the early 20th century.
If you are in Borgo Teresiano, go to the Caffè Stella Polare, a regular destination for the Irish novelist James Joyce. Joyce was also fond of local sweets and used to have them at the Antica Pasticceria Pirona. If you wish to meet the artists and writers of today, then you cannot miss the Caffè San Marco, an old-fashioned coffee bar where it is not unusual to meet Magris working on his latest book.
