Staff is friendly and the location is lovely. Coffee and Panini are great. By far my favorite coffeeshop in the North Beach area.

Good prices, great food and always busy. The cappuccino was amazing and the chai latte with soy was made to order. I'd like to make scrambled eggs like we had there-delish. Fast service, sometimes lined out the door.

We had coffee and waffles with berries. I have to say the inside has a "proper" old italian feel and we loved the atmosphere. If the local italians are going there you know you're in the right place. Hands down the best coffee I've had...More

Good espresso but the ‘cannolo’ was not great. The ambience is good with also some tables outdoor in the street

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
