Caffè Giacosa on the corner of Via della Spada and Via Tornabuoni does not bear the name, but preserves the subsequent legacy, style and imprint of the family. Now a new Florentine must-see, Caffè Lietta - named after the artist Lietta Cavalli, sister of the designer Roberto and an icon of experimental fashion of the Seventies and Eighties - with its 150 square metres of surface area, 45 seats and an open workshop in the loft above the rooms, has a 12-metre counter, designed to respond to different moments of the day: from breakfast, with a dessert department supplied by the pastry shop on the upper floor, to lunch, with a space for gastronomy and express preparations, to the cafeteria and bar department, for coffee breaks and aperitifs. To order the grandmother's cake or the "pirulo", a special pudding with short pastry filled with ricotta cheese, available in different variations according to the seasons (fresh apple, gianduia cream, busco fruits).
