Naples is a city full of pastry shops and bars where you can enjoy delicious breakfasts. If you are on vacation or planning a trip to this sunny city, I point out my favourite 5 places to have breakfast in Naples.

The classic way to start the day as a local is to order a strong espresso and a sfogliatella. But to tourists, I suggest enjoying a wider choice. Diving in the Neapolitan tradition, scents and flavours is the best way to get to know the real Naples.

Naples and coffee are a perfect match, that's why my list could only start from here! In this historic bar, you can enjoy the best coffee in the city. Located in a strategic position to visit Naples, in Piazza Trieste e Trento:

  • 2 min. walk from Galleria Umberto, the shopping streets Via Toledo and Via Chiaia;
  • 1 minute away from the beautiful Piazza del Plebiscito.

Their speciality is coffee, from the classic to the more elaborate, to the coffees served as real desserts. As for pastries, there is a vast and excellent selection between croissants, brioches, sfogliatelle, babbà and many other local delicacies.

For a breakfast in Naples in a refined setting we have the Gran Caffè Gambrinus. Officially inaugurated on 3 November 1890. An ideal place for a sweet or savoury breakfast in an elegant location.

My top 5 rankings to have breakfast in Naples ends with the ancient pastry Cuori di sfogliatella. Reign of delicacies, the oldest location is right in front of the central station of Naples. So, anyone arriving by train is welcomed by the tasty smell of their sweet.

You can find a more recent site in Via Toledo, right in the heart of the city. Cuori di Sfogliatella is a must for breakfast in Naples! In addition to the sfogliatelle, a typical Neapolitan dessert, made in every possible and imaginable way, I suggest you try the big glass with babbà & creams!
