The city of coffee

Caffè Stella Polare

Caffè Stella Polare was once located in the Contrada della Caserma (today, Via XXX Ottobre) and in 1848, year of the Republican Revolutions, it was called Caffè Gioberti.
In a cosmopolitan city such as Trieste, it was popular with the German community and later with personalities such as Umberto Saba, his daughter Linuccia, Guido Voghera, Virgilio Giotti and James Joyce, lecturer at the Berlitz School nearby.

Today, in addition to bar and café, it also serves lunch. For anyone looking for tranquillity, there is a comfortable and quiet Tea Room, decorated with prints of Trieste's beautiful historic piazzas.

During the year, the main room hosts painting and photography exhibitions.
