Stopped in to grab a dessert after eating dinner elsewhere. They have several choices of cakes, cheesecakes, cannolis, etc. I ordered a chocolate covered macaroon ball which was very good. There was a line when I arrived and the customers were serviced quickly and efficiently....More

A quick stop for coffee. The barista was super nice and friendly -- which made us to enjoy the coffee a bit more. Two coffees + tips were about $7 USD. The coffee was great.

Stopped for a short break and a cup of cappuccino and an espresso. Really good stuff, nice outdoors patio area on the street so you can watch all the activity while relaxing with family and friends.

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.
