We had breakfast, cappuccino, fresh orange juice and croissants all delicious. The barista was very friendly. Illy coffee is always the best if know how to make it and they did know!!! I would go back and I highly recommend.

This was exactly the charming, relaxing experience we were looking for. The barrista was cheery and friendly. Quite a few locals there. Spacious enough for comfort. I will definitely return. Great lattes.

We were looking for a good coffee and breakfast on a Sunday morning before heading to Alcatraz. This turned out perfect. The coffee was excellent and the food good. Lots of locals taking their time reading whilst enjoying a morning coffee.

This was a lovely surprise: tiramisù and cannoli really delicious! I must say that the staff was not so kind but coffee and desserts are well made and good prices as well. Have a try if you are in town!

Hadn’t been to SF in 20 years and were revisiting old favs. Had lunch at Molinari’s Deli and were headed to Cafe Puccini, which sadly, had closed. Up the street was Caffe Greco so we decided to try it. Glad we did. It wasn’t too...More
