"Imagina" Venice was once an art gallery and now turned into the friendliest spot for coffee or cocktails in the lively Campo Santa Margherita area...

The friendliest spot for coffee or cocktails in lively Campo Santa Margherita is the Imagina Cafe. Once an actual art gallery, the space was cleverly turned into a coffee house.

Imagina is owned and operated by two charming gentlemen, Stefano and Domenico. whom you will find on site with their staff. This design oriented cafe is open seven days a week and filled with locals and tourists alike. Students clamour to organize graduation parties and events in this intimate, chic spot. 

This is my favorite location for a light lunch on a spring day, people watching near the Ponte dei Pugni (fighting bridge) in Dorsoduro. The salads and sandwiches are always super fresh and served with a smile. The walls host an array of altering art works by both local and international artists. 

Multi lingual and vegetarian friendly, you will find what you are looking for at the Imagina cafe!
