Venice locals tend to stay as far away as possible from the Boardwalk as possible, but new Australian cafe Great White gives them a reason to head towards the crowds. It’s a light and bright daytime spot near the Venice sign with excellent coffee and a great breakfast burrito. It’s also super fast, so you can be in and out for a pre-office breakfast in thirty minutes. That said, they certainly won’t rush you out if you want to hang out over a few flat whites.
