Overview

Opened in 1867, this place is in a splendid location on the canal, near the great church of Sant'Antonio Nuovo and the Orthodox Serbian church of San Spiridione. It was destroyed in 1915 by anti-Italian demonstrators even though it was popular with shopkeepers and intellectuals of the German colony. It has recently been completely renovated and returned to its former elegance and it has a well looked after, sophisticated atmosphere. It is near the Piazza dell'Unità d'Italia, in the heart of the old Teresiano area, which was the favorite of the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria and has now become a small Chinatown and a meeting place for the Serbian community in Trieste. As well as coffee and tea, this place also offers excellent gelato and fruit with cream.
