Now that you know about coffee shops offering big coffees and wi-fi, are you curious to find other cozy cafeterias to eat, drink, work, and plug in your laptop and, perhaps, your mind?
A map of these venues follows
1. Mercato del Duomo
If you’re strolling through the city center in search of a quiet yet central venue to work while sipping a coffee, you really have to take a visit to Mercato del Duomo. Set in front of the Duomo, this three-storeys polifunctional space hosts a shop at the second floor where you can find fruit, bread, cheese and, of course, coffee. Besides the American coffee, you really have to try “Cuccuma”, a typical Neapolitan coffee fresh-made by the kind staff. For those who need to use their laptop, the market offers free and unlimited wi-fi connection, as well as plugs to re-charge the computer; a cozy gourmet location featuring one of the best compromises between prices and high quality products.
