A quick fix near the
Why locals love it
It's a good, central spot for breakfast-on-the-go, particularly for people catching a train or coming into town from the central station, which is just a stone's throw away. The (non-alcoholic) beverages on offer are rarities in most other Florence bars: think banana smoothies, Acai berry blends and adventurous coffee concoctions.
Why you should visit it
Suffering from coffee and cornetto fatigue? Shake puts a more international spin on breakfast. The smoothies, frappes and juice blends are what make it worth a visit, but the sandwich and salad selection isn't half-bad either! If you're visiting the famous Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, this is a great spot to stop for a snack or a quick meal.
