Fratelli Cafe has three things going for it; Hospitality, Good Food, and location. We got there at 10:30 on a perfect 75 degree sunny day with no reservation; they couldn't have been more accommodating. After only a short 10 minute wait we were able to sit on the patio on the corner of Melrose. We had the champagne special (bottle... More

This place is perfect for breakfast style food all day, 7 days a week. The service is fast and the food is so delicious, I go there 2-3 times per week lol. Sweet or salty breakfast options, and if you are looking for lunch/dinner type of meals you've got that to! I also do tons of coffee meetings there because... More

It looks like a restaurant or cafe from the outside but seems more like someone's apt on the inside. We had a late lunch there in December and were underwhelmed. Soda comes in a can, and the meal is cooked on hotplates. The food wasn't bad but it wasn't a $10 burger either. If you're desperate for something to eat... More

I ate breakfast at Fratelli Cafe. Upon ordering I found the service to be friendly and helpful. I had salmon scramble with rye toast. The food was good, with a wide range of choices and excellent portion sizes. I also had an Americano which was well made. I would definitely go back!

I had brunch here and was pleasantly surprised - We ended up here as Blujam was closed and this was a last minute find - The food was lovely and the staff were great. Unfortunately we ate on a day when just one person was serving, and they seemed very stressed and understaffed, but this is not fault of the... More

This is a place for west-europeans, or frenchmen at least!!!!! Chocolat croissant doesn't fear any comparison in the nearest universe. French toast look gorgious... We only had tipical eggs... These were average... No issue... Coffee and ambience were so appealing.
