This whole place is like a crack shop...stop in for one thing and you'll find yourself coming back again and again for another sinful delight! Whether it's their silky spumoni, rich coffee, tasty oatmeal (with honey at the bottom!), or that decadent coffee cake, you can't go wrong with the food here! The staff is friendly and helpful too, so stop in next time you find yourself in Little Italy!

My husband and I were waiting for our plane, and decided to kill some time in a cafe. We made a great choice! Fun, friendly staff. Places to charge phones, etc; great coffee. They did not rush us. A great place to kick back and relax. Tirimisu was good, not great, but coffee made up for it. Highly recommended,

the lattes are excellent, and we bought 3 lbs of the whole bean coffee to take home. The staff are friendly, service quick and prices very reasonable.

After a bit of walking around the heart of Little Italy, we stopped for a quick coffee. The inside of the cafe is clean and cute with subtle Italian accents on the walls and cute mugs to buy. I got a traditional single espresso, no sugar and he got a cappuccino. The drinks were very tasty and were not in any way watered down. He also got a cannoli, it was just ok. Normally I dislike the chocolate shells. Other than that, the cafe was very cute and great for people watching :) If you're in San Diego, I say check it out.

The soup was great. On Fridays they have 1/2 price off on wine. They were out of two of the items we wanted. Had to wait 20 minutes to get bread at the table and another 10 for them to take our order and another 10 to get drinks. Got served the wrong wine. Asked for angel hair, they said yes, and brought spaghetti. They really need more staff to make this place great.
