Focacceria Bondi Florence – Florentine focaccia

Snacks

"Foacceria Bondi" in Florence is a hidden little antique family bakery that hasn't changed from the '50s. They make some amazing, special focaccia here...

If you are site seeing and want something on the go but don't want to fall in a tourist trap, then this hidden little antique place is just for you. I fell in love the first time I went, and also thought that having 2 focaccia was a good idea... They are very filling even if they seem small. It is a special recipe that has been in the Bondi family for a long time. The tables and look have not been changed from the '50s so get ready to take a vintage pic to put on your Instagram profile!

These are not simple sandwiches, they have special fillings that take hours to prepare, like the eggplant parmigiana or a cooked zucchini sauce. The bread is always warm and fresh... just thinking about it I could eat one now. It is right near mercato San Lorenzo, smack in the center, and only have places inside to sit down for a focaccia.
