Naples Espresso

Wondering which cafes in Naples are considered to have the best espresso. I think the overall average quality here is amazing, maybe the best in the world for me. I've enjoyed Bar Mexico opposite Piazza Dante, and also Cafe Dei Professori near to Gambrinus, as well as countless smaller places. But I'm wondering what other places in this city make truly exceptional espresso.

  1. Once I found Mexico (the Naples coffee chain) I kept going back. I'm with you - the city had possibly the best standard of coffee in the world...

      Yup, I'm not sure I have ever had a bad espresso while in Naples. I have tried so many small neighborhood bars and all have fantastic coffee.

    2. I agree with you about Napoli and Bar Mexico in particular (the one near the train station, and the one in Vomero are equally good).

      But Trieste gives Napoli a run for its money in terms of great coffee in so many places.
