We are in Santa Margherita for four weeks and every night, we have cocktails at this adorable café on the piazza by the cathedral. Wonderful ambiance and service. They have breakfast as well with delicious cappuccinos and brioche.

Right in the intersection of the square opposite the Old Church. We had a cappuccino there today. Whilst the cups are rather small,the coffee was very good. It also looks like a nice setting outside for simmer.
