Breakfast in Rome? La Zanzara will amaze you.


It’s not just a simple breakfast in Rome.

Italian breakfast, Coffee shop, Desserts, Savory Breakfast, Juices, Shakes, Centrifuges and Smoothies. And much more… Croque Madame and Monsieur, Club sandwiches and eggs. And finally, newspapers at your table and free Wi-Fi. You’ll find all this in a familiar ambient, from the courteous staff behind the counter right up to what’s on offer in the menu. Breakfast at La Zanzara.

A Breakfast Menu available seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to noon. 

The only exception is Sundays: we too sleep half an hour longer… and we open at 8 o’clock!


The Coffee Shop

The Coffee is from Bondolfi: a traditional Roman brand that has always focused on the quality of the mixtures and the production process.

Espresso coffee, American coffee, decaffeinated coffee, barley coffee, ginseng coffee and of course creamy cappuccinos, which you can have either at the counter or at a table.

The Teas and infusion teas selected by “Le vie del Te” from Florence are high quality mixtures that will satisfy even the most finicky palates. And for those of you with a sweet tooth there’s Hot Chocolate, with or without whipped cream. And there’s also:

  • Organic fruit juices – Plose
  • Freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Peach and lemon Ice tea, naturally made by us.

Italian breakfast

As we all know, a croissant (cornetto) goes great with a coffee. But there’s more: at La Zanzara we’ve decided to make lots of room for our Pastries. And this is why we’ve chosen to offer sweets from a famous Italian atelier. Selected ingredients, natural yeast and natural flavors. It’s no coincidence that many of our most loyal customers can’t do without them… Not just croissants, but a real selection for breakfast:

  • Brioches, to suit all tastes: simple, cream, apricot and whole-wheat.
  • Finanziera, the French sweet: light and soft, perfect for those who don’t want to exaggerate.
  • Danish roll, a classic.
  • Krapfen, the famous Austrian fried sweet with filling.
  • Horse Shoe with Gianduja or Apricot,
  • Croissant with Almonds, a real breakfast treat at La Zanzara.
  • Girella with apple, raisins and pine nuts, similar to the flavors and scents of strudels.
  • Muffins, because everyone loves this American sweet.


Savory breakfast, from 10 a.m.

At La Zanzara we’re proud to have one of the few breakfast offers in Rome… Savory!

Centrifuges, shakes and Smoothies

Breakfast at La Zanzara also means fruit and vegetable centrifuges. Healthy, light and tasty. The selection of five centrifuges was created for those who want to have a healthy, thirst quenching drink that is both detoxifying and energizing. Our choice of centrifuges includes pineapple, apple, ginger, celery, fennel and more. And of course, if you have a particular mix in mind… just ask and we we’ll do our best to accommodate you!

The Smoothies are our specialty: fresh fruit, milk or orange juice along with imagination are the basic ingredients of this creamy shake, loved by all, especially our international customers. If however you prefer an Italian Frullato, you just need to ask.

At La Zanzara, whatever you need and whatever your ideal breakfast may be, we’ll be waiting for you to start the day with a smile!

The day should begin with a hug, a kiss, a caress and a coffee.  Because breakfast should be generous.” (Charles M. Schulz).
