Italian food might be the most vegetarian-friendly European cuisine there is, so a post on my food (and coffee!) adventures in Rome couldn't fit into just one post. Here's part 2 of my food series on Rome (part 1 is here), and where to get the best vegetarian-friendly food and coffee!
Disclaimer: I only had a handful of meals in Rome, but I'm always so excited when I'm about to visit someplace new, I end up over-researching restaurants and cafés. I ended up with a list of of almost 30 spots to eat and drink at. Naturally, I couldn't get to every place, so I'll split this post into two parts: the restaurants/cafés I made it to, and those highly-reviewed ones on my list I didn't have time for or because they weren't close to where I was staying.
COFFEE: Café Greco, Spanish Steps
This is the oldest café in Rome, and luckily enough for me, it was in the same building as my hotel! It's very very fancy, and if you sit down with a cup of coffee, it'll cost you almost three times as much as if you just stood at the bar and sipped on your drink (this is true for all cafés in Rome).
They have great paninis, served on the most delicious bread I tried in Rome - pizza bianca. You should be able to order it anywhere, it's a pretty readily available type of bread - it's HEAVEN! So soft and buttery, you can eat it by itself.
COFFEE: Tazza d'Oro, Pantheon
The most famous place to buy coffee beans or powder, and any coffee-related goodies; so if you're looking for souvenirs or gifts for your friends back home, this is a must!
