Centro Storico Italian breakfasts tend to be short and sweet, but you can satisfy brunch cravings with a trip to Coromandel. A few steps from buzzing Piazza Navona, this charming café offers classics like pancakes (with Nutella, naturally) and eggs Benedict on dainty china. The quirky décor and tasty bites set the perfect mood for Sunday brunching.
Balduina Pizzarium serves up pizza al taglio
(by the slice) that you have to taste to believe. With options stuffed with slow-roasted pork, topped with octopus, or even pizza-lasagna amalgams, the combos imagined by Gabriele Bonci change daily and are all borderline life-changing -- or at the very least, diet-changing. Be prepared to take a number and stand while you eat; this no-frills shop near the Vatican focuses on flavor rather than comfort, but is more than worth the wait.
