Since 1938, Sant’Eustachio il Caffè has been preserving the tradition of good coffee and maintaining its quality.
Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè is an ancient wood-fire roasting plant established in 1938. It stands in Rome’s Piazza Sant’Eustachio, a stone’s throw from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, in a space that was once a café dating all the way back to 1800.
Built in masonry and ergonomic shape made the plant extremely innovative for its time: the lack of wooden furniture and use of white gave it a highly modern look. The beautiful building that houses it is the Palazzo Cenci Maccarani, designed in 1500 by famous architect Giulio Romano, known for the Palazzo Tè in Mantua.
Since 1999, the restaurant is run by the Ricci brothers, who keep the tradition intact by upholding their primary goal of serving a quality product, using organic and fair trade coffee, produced by slow food presidia to create a fine blend of 100% Arabica coffee imported directly from South America. On top of this, they also offer a wide range of products based on the secret – and now-legendary – Sant’Eustachio coffee blend.
Through F Retail, the historic brand has struck up a collaboration with Vyta, the sandwich chain with a multi-award-winning design, whose first store opened in Roma Termini station in May 2022.
