What a cute caffe! We enjoyed their coffee drinks. Their menu looked yummy and I wish we had more time in San Diego to try more from their menu. Their gelato looked delicious. There seemed to be a lot of local people coming in and out for their coffee, so that's a good thing! I would go back to try more things from their menu! The scones were a little doughy, but, everything else looked fabulous!

Café Italia is used by La Pensione Hotel as a breakfast option with a voucher system. We upgraded our breakfast with small extra charges to skinny lattes and better pastries and bagels. It was always busy when we were there. The staff were great and we got to know a few of the characters there. The food was fresh and coffee not too strong. There’s a small outside space on the sidewalk in which to people watch. There was a white Bentley & SLK convertible Mercedes parked outside the week we were there. Testimony of how well-heeled Little Italy is. Locals outnumber tourists in this café which is a benchmark to how good it is.

Breakfast here is more or less included when staying in La Pensione hotel. Great! Very good coffee, very good food and very good service. Great value for money! Also when you stay somewhere else.

The hotel we stayed at gave us vouchers for breakfast here. The coffee is great tasting and the danishes are light, full of flavour and have the extra added bonus of being bigger than hockey pucks. They play when you go down in the morning old school late 70's tunes which are perfect to wake you up.

We were staying at La Pensione hotel and in the morning we had a coupon for having breakfast at Caffè Italia. Cappuccino and latte macchiato were really good, but croassants tasted like nothing. I tried one time the gelato from there but I do not suggest you to try it!
