Ideally located in a corner of Piazza Trilussa in Trastevere, Café Friends is a lively bar regularly occupied by the swarms of people who descend on the square to peruse the offerings of the vendors and chat over drinks at the venue’s outdoor tables.

Inside, the space – which sports a décor of punctured sheet metal – is a bit more cramped as customers line up at the long, glass-topped bar that stretches across the room in an undulating wave, or crowd around the tables in the two slightly quieter sections off the bar area.

Because of its prime location in the piazza, its reputation for spontaneously handing out free shots, and its unusual offering of an American-style breakfast, Café Friends attracts a regular and spirited crowd of preppy Italians and international students looking for lively conversation and a bustling atmosphere.

Great Location
Denisa D. Apr 26, 2013
This is a great spot that everyone from JCU would go to before their classes. During the spring and summer some students would sit on the patio while working on papers. It's convenient to come here between classes for a quick snack, or a quick drink while enjoying the supplis from the pizza place across the street. The bartenders speak English, and are also not bad to look at. There are a lot of other cafes and bars in this neighborhood and between both JCU campuses but this one was right in Piazza Trilussa, next to the big steps where after the sun goes down the natives and the study abroad students would gather to relax. I liked Friends not only because it reminded me of my favorite TV show every time I walked by, but because it really was a friendly place to go to during the day.
very friendly bar

I bring friend to cafe friends in Trastevere, is very groovy and nice cafe. The barmans are very nice and friendly to and we are friends. Very much times, there is shots gratis for the customers, and Cafe Friends is very nice to much tourists. We are very happy when they come because we can practice our english and share with them Roma, which is a very friendly and happy city. Is also nice in day to stop by for a caffe, the barista is very nice and creates fantastic coffee. The bar is very nice place.
