Found this gem on our last visit to San Francisco. The coffee is great, the pastries are delicious, and the mood is relaxed. This is a great place to start your day or take a break from sightseeing.

Coffee cafe that roasts its own coffee right on the premises. The coffee roaster is right in the front of the cafe. I had a chai latte which was just delicious. Hubby had a cappuccino which he enjoyed very much. Very relaxing place to sit,...More

Came here from other reviews and wasn't disappointed. Lovely atmosphere, good service and quite simply the best tasting iced coffee ice ever had. Fresh orange and cake was also very tasty!

Well-patronized by locals, this coffeehouse roasts its own coffee beans right on the premises. It is spacious, has a comfortable-feeling ambience, and also serves breakfast foods and light snacks. If you are in this neighborhood, this is definitely worth a visit.

This is one of SFO's favorite Little Italy/North Beach coffee shops. Low on atmosphere, but high on great coffee - so many varieties to choose from prepared by knowing baristas. Locals are there all day reading newspapers, sipping, eating, quietly chatting, etc. Good light as...More

Stopped at this place while on a food tour and had an amazing cappuccino. Probably best cappuccino I've had outside of Italy.

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.
