If you are looking for cooked breakfast in Rome, the type with delicious pancakes, eggs, waffles, juice and more, you need to look for places offering ‘American breakfast’.

Traditional breakfast in Rome is very different from the cooked type, and it is usually a small affair with pastry and coffee (if had outside the house. You can read here >>> all about breakfast in Rome).
