The food was fantastic. The man at the counter recommended a traditional Italian breakfast and it tasted amazing! The people working there are incredibly friendly and welcoming too. I loved Bar Fondi!

I had a simple cake with chocolate and a cafe macchiato. The cake was pretty good but nothing special. It's a nice place for breakfast!

Doesn't take cards, despite clearly having a card machine. Friendly but disorganised. Satisfactory coffee - okay pastry.

One of my favorite places to eat breakfast, and to listen to live music on mondays with open-mic Rome, recommended for open-minded and artistic people:)

The owner and staff are really nice. Good food. We particularly liked the salad that is prepared according to your wishes, with rice, grains, vegetables. Vegan or vegetarian.

3 of us tried Bar Fondi for lunch for our first meal in Rome - and it set the bar for the whole trip very high! The guys behind the counter were in great form, and were very friendly. There was no menu for sandwiches - they are already made, sitting behind the counter, and you point out the one... More

Stopped here twice during our week in Rome; both times for breakfast. Small place and clearly very popular. Cappuccino was very nice and a good range of breakfast pastries. Croissants were lovely! Decently priced with very friendly staff. Would recommend.

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
