This review is for Bijan Bakery & Cafe in Saratoga. The place is small and has older tables and chairs but also has excellent pastries: tasty, freshly bakes and delicious. They have coffee and tee to go with it and you would not be disappointed....More

I enjoyed a very good Cappuccino at Bijan Bakery and Cafe in downtown San Jose. It was very good. Bijan Bakery also has lots of great bakery goods for purchase. Service is good. One orders at the counter.

Across the plaza is the Bijan wine bar. It has a patio perfect for people watching. Wine is a big pour for about 13.00. The service is outstanding. They have outside heaters in the winter. Music playing and a very relaxing place. Recommended

If you are British and after a good cup of tea downtown San Jose- this is the place to go! I also tried ice cream which was sub standard (I would give 1 star).

This is a nice bakery but the pastries were just ok. They had a lot of pre-made salads and sandwiches but not too much was fresh-made to order.

Delicious pastries and coffee. Service was quick and friendly. There are several tables outside where you can sit and enjoy your breakfast while enjoying the sights and sounds of the city and the beautiful weather.
