Great Tofu Scramble - Edit

More often than not, tofu scramble is tasteless. This place had one of the best tofu wraps I’ve ever had. Omni friends loved their food too. Has good selection of juice and smoothies.

Pros: Flavors, Price, Atmosphere

amazing service and food! - Edit

The staff was wonderful, and the interior was so cozy! Most of the dishes come with baked and spiced potatoes and salad eith balsamic dressing. The waitress was very friendly, and even though there was only a fee vegan options on the menu, she told us it was possible to 'veganize' almost any dish. I had the tofu scramble wrap (amazing), and the le vespe mule drink (equally amazing). This café is definitely worth five stars!

Pros: the staff, the food, the interior

Cons: toilet malfunctions

nice food but not many vegan options - Edit

Went for Sunday brunch and only one vegan option was available. We were told that the granola could not be made with soy milk and was only available with diary yoghurt.
We had the scramble tofu with roast potatoes, beans, tomato, beans and spinach for 13 euros. The food was tasted good and was a decent portion size but it was pretty expensive for what we got. They also had 2 vegan smoothies and 2 juices (that we didn't get).

Pros: tasty food , good portion size

Cons: a bit pricey, not many options

Would give 5 Stars! - Edit

It's a shame I can't give this place five stars because I had the best meal in Italy so far at this great cafe.

The tofu scramble wrap was perfect vegan food. As good as it gets. I also enjoyed an espresso with almond milk on the side.

The value for money was excellent, too. Highly recommended if you're in Florence.

Pros: Best tofu scramble I've ever had

Cons: Could have more vegan options

A slice of Toronto in Florence - Edit

Very nice North American style cafe with a daily brunch menu they serve until 5pm.

The brunch menu items are named after Toronto neighbourhoods because the owner is from there. I had The a Junction which is a tofu scramble with toast, roasted potatoes and salad. It wasn't the most flavourful scramble I've ever had but it was still good. The portion was small but they have also just returned from vacation and I think are short on items.

My partner had the via dei pepi off the lunch menu which is basically the tofu scramble a wrap.

Perfect English spoken here. Not lots but very good vegan options on a well labelled English menu. The soy cappuccinos were also nice. Has wifi and outlets under each table.

Definitely recommended if you're looking for the vegan North American experience and breakfast or cafe food.

Pros: Tofu scramble, English spoken perfectly, Nice atmosphere

Cons: A little bland, Small portions

An authentic trattoria italian - Edit

I don't know if the change the name of the restaurant or if it's a new one, it was on number 5 and was called "Trattoria da I'Secco".
There are 2 menu, one vegetarian and the other one with meat.
Be careful if you're vegan, there are cheese ang eggs in many of the dishes.
Otherwise, it was good and the restaurant was very pretty.

Pros: Good food, Ambiance

Cons: Rarely vegan, Don't speak english very well

Meowmeow 02 Sep 2014 - It very much exists. Sounds like you went to another business.
