There were a lot of desserts to choose from, it's unfortunate that the staff doesn't know what they are and isn't really helpful. We stopped in while visiting the downtown area and wanted to take dessert with us.

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

Bijan on the alley has been here a good long time, but I fail to understand how. The cases are well stocked with cookies, pastries and cakes, but the taste shows they skimped on ingrediants, and some have been there too long. Don't waste the...More
