Stop by These Florence Restaurants for a Quality Brunch Unlike Any Other

Florence might not be the place you would expect to find brunch as an option of meals, but more and more restaurants are giving it a try and finding success with tourists that flock to the city. Whether you are planning on sleeping in and want to catch a later plate of food, or you are planning on eating hearty in order to get you through the day, there are several places for you to consider.

You might want to stop by the town favorite: the Diner. Serving up American food, you'll feel like you are back home again as you bite into a delicious burger drenched in all of your favorite condiments. It's perfect for the homesick traveler or those craving some french fries or waffles.

Check out Caffe Paszkowski when you want to try something new. It's a wonderful tribute to the old Italian cafes, and you'll find some delicious pastries, traditional coffee, and wonderful seating so you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful view into the Piazza della Repubblica. Also, Moyo is another favorite, offing Florence's favorite breakfast drink and a creation of Ernest Hemingway's: the Bellini. You won't want to leave without sampling this taste of Florence's history.
