Right around the corner from one of our favorites, Original Joe's, we wanted to check out Caffe Frascati. One of us had the baguette sandwich and I had the panini. After ordering at the counter, the items were ready for us in about 5 minutes. We both enjoyed our food. Seemed like a great location for people in the 20's... More

Prosecco and Taramesu! Perfect for a Friday afternoon! Strolled here from our hotel and found this gem of a coffee shop! Will definitely come here again next time in San Jose. 👍🏼👍🏼

I came to this coffee shop since it was convenient, close to San Jose Marriott where I stayed. I had high expectations because of the good reviews. Unfortunately, you could have the best coffee/food if the service is not good, it's no good! I was very disappointed that I waited 20 mins for my food. It turned out they forgot... More

I grabbed a breakfast there and was happy about the food. I was a little disappointed that there I was not able to get soy or almond milk, but the latte was hot and the atmosphere is nice inside the cafe.

I love Caffe Frascati,the coffee is delicious, and the ambience is great. They host an Opera event every so often where local Opera singers perform, super fun.

Popped in here for a coffee - which was very nice - and then stayed for a bottle of beer, which was too (a Californian lager, Firestone Walker's 805). There's a really friendly, calm vibe to the place - which does feel like a coffee shop you'd visit in Italy. It's also very good value - $2.65 for a coffee... More

I just drove out to Caffe Frascati, and on the door there's a sign saying that the Commedia night has been moved to Wednesday. It was pretty disappointed that they haven't updated their website.

Stopped by for lunch after the Auto Show at the SJ Convention Center. The vegetarian Panini was great as was the 3-cheese Panini (both were huge). They have an interesting selection of beers which great prices and delicious coffee too. If you're there in the evenings, check out the weekly music performances too.
