The 3 Best Coffee Places in Pisa
The best thing about having a coffee in Pisa is the chance to lose yourself in one of the many picturesque piazzas. Caffè Dei Cavalieri is a sweet spot in Piazza Dei Cavalieri, serving hot and cold coffees in a classic Tuscan setting. The piazza is host to the Medici statue, so you can sit in the presence of incredible Renaissance art while enjoying a rich caffè latte.
Caffè Dei Cavalieri is listed as a ‘Speciality Coffee Shop’, providing a wide range of espresso as well as every type of milk you can think of, including vegan options. They experiment with high-quality coffees such as Panama Geisha, which is made with ripe cherries and comes from the birthplace of coffee in Ethiopia. Caffè Dei Cavalieri is one of the few places in Pisa to offer different varieties in filtered coffee, so this is a must for coffee lovers!

Whether you’re looking for a classic latte or a thick, creamy cioccolata calda, this place has it all. This cafe also has a menu suited to the Pisa nightlife, giving you cocktails with a caffeine twist. Why not try the ‘caffè corretto’ - a combination of fresh espresso and a shot of grappa?
There is a clear passion behind the drinks with things like ‘Negroni Week’ and over ten coffees to choose from the menu.

At the hottest time of day sometimes an iced latte won’t cut it, so why not try some coffee gelato?
