While it is true, I am very much a creature of habit, I really do enjoy exploring new places. I also enjoy rare mornings spent chit-chatting with very clever friends over morning coffee.
My very clever friend Jeannie invited me to a place she had discovered in the large, open Piazza Santa Cecila in Trastevere.
The sunshine streams in, there are comfy chairs, great coffee and pastries, terrific music playing and walls lined with beautiful photography and design books. What's not to like.
Whenever I am over on this side of the river I pay a visit to the shrine of the beautiful Santa Cecila. She is the patron saint of musicians. With college applications just around the corner for the musician in my house, I figure a quick pilgrimage can't hurt.
Open from 8:30 am
