“Great place for visitors and locals”
Reviewed 30 November 2006

I used to live on Grand Ave., so I've been a guest at Cafe Latte often. This is a great meeting place for visitors or locals who need a respite from shopping along Grand Ave. The food is wonderful, I recommend the soups or pasta salads, but leave room for dessert, which is really the main dish at this establishment. The serving style may be surprising: It's cafeteria style, but the food is definitely not cafeteria quality. You will walk down past the delicious offerings, placing your choices on your tray, sandwiches are made-to-order. Then you pay for everything at the end of the line. Some items may be delivered to your table. Sit upstairs or in the wine bar. They also offer a deliciously tempting afternoon tea in the wine bar.

“YUMMY Desserts!”
Reviewed 3 September 2006

I love this place. I go there mostly for the coffee & desserts. They serve super yummy cakes in all varieties. Expect to pay around $5 for a slice of cake/cheesecake

The cheesecake is firm and not soft. This is good as most often, many resturants serve cheesecake dry & lumpy or soggy.

The cakes are moist with the right texture. The chocolate cake may look over-whelmingly sweet, however, the sugar level is just right (for my palette at least).

Lunch time at Cafe Latte is super busy so get ready to wait in long lines. I like to go right before lunch or shortly after the lunch hour rush. I dont think the place gets packed around dinner time as they are more known for their baked goods??

Cafe Latte also serves a decent selection of wine at decent prices. Although, they are not quite up there on my wine-bar list.

I highly recommend the place and it is one of my favorite hangouts in the cities.
