Decent food, reasonable prices, quick service, a pleasant place to rest a while. The front room is a cafe but if you walk through to the back, you will be in the cafeteria. We found the wait staff to be particularly nice. This is where...More

Pros: - cheap (for venice), our burger was €6.50 including veg (see below) - offered the most vegetarian options we had seen in Venice; granted it was only 3. Cons: - not as vegetarian friendly as advertised - extremely bland, stale and tasteless - small...More

Free WiFi. Free Toilet. Great ambience. Affordable price. What more can you ask? Look at my receipt for meal for 5 with wine. See yourself. Who says Venice is expensive?

The Brek offers a cheap basic meal for 6.90 euros before 7pm (lunch) and about 10 euros after 7pm, closing around 9. You get pasta, salad, bun, and bottle of water. The pasta station is first, and there is sometimes a choice of 3 sauces,...More

This bar/ristorante is located near the train station. On our arrival to Venice, we had a lovely breakfast in the bar - fresh and warm pastries and a filling slice of pizza for kids. In the afternoon, on our way back to the train station,...More

Brek doesn't look much from the street but go in for a lunchtime salad or meal and you'll get excellent food at a very reasonable price.

Ate here for breakfast with our group of 11 en route to the train station (few minutes walk). Indoor seating and air conditioning. Plenty of seats and room for our luggage. Hearty breakfast of coffee or juice, eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, lettuce, tomato for 8€....More

Inexpensive, straightforward Italian food with a few bizarre Americaneze offerings; lots of options for people with specific dietary needs. Some great salads and perfectly cooked veggie dishes (especially the eggplant).

Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district)
with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many
transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying
areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand
for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal
bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution,
2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli
Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
