Wow I love this place so much. This coffee shop doesnt have a pompous feel like so many coffee shops have. They are always super friendly here and the gelato is honestly the most authentic gelato you will get on this side of the world....More

Excellent coffee. Pastries, gelato fresh, made from scratch. Panini was out of this world. It was so good we went there three times in 2 days.

Ideal little neighborhood coffee shop with a variety of pastries, cookies and ice cream. I had a smoked turkey Panini on homemade bread that was fantastic. As was the soup of the day.

It closes at 5:00pm. So get there before they close. We had coffee, a sandwich and lemon pound cake. All were very good and very reasonably priced. In the trendy Cloverdale area. Worth going out of our way to eat there .

Cafe Louisa has the best cappuccino in town. The chicken salad plate and hummus plate are good lunch or snack options. For dessert, the dark chocolate peanut butter brownie is heavenly and the sugar cookies are great too.
