Barely a chain at two gran caffè locations in Napoli, Gran Caffè Cimmino is one of the major quality coffee and pasticceria institutions in all of Napoli. In fact, throughout the early 2000s until about 2007, they dominated the Gambero Rosso Bar d'Italia ratings for the area.

Originally founded in 1907 in the Posillipo district of Napoli, they have a "laboratorio artigianale di pasticceria" (yes, an artisan pastry "lab"), host private cocktail and buffet events, but also promote some of the most well-regarded espresso standards in the region. Currently managed by brothers Antonio and Salvatore Fantini, the former of which pulled espresso shots at Caffè Mexico on Via Scarlatti since 1948 using 100% Arabica blends.
