A restaurant, cafe and bar in Ca' Giustinian - home of the Biennale. Great place to stop for a coffee with views across the canal of the Salute church. 2017 prices: €3.50 for a cappuccino, €5 for a prosecco or spritz aperol.
This is a cafe in an old Victorian greenhouse near Giardini. The greenhouse was recently restored and houses a plant shop, and an exhibition space. There are regular events and workshops for children. The cafe also has free wifi.
The most famous cafe in Venice and the oldest in Italy. Florian's is in Saint Mark's Square. You can sit at a table outside (or inside in the Winter) and have an extremely expensive drink and soak up the atmosphere and music. Alternatively, you can stand at the bar, have a coffee and pay a more sensible price with the locals.
