Great breakfast and coffee

Came to caffe tosi for a quick breakfast and coffee before a day strolling around town looking at the ice sculptures. Not a huge menu- but everything was great! It is a popular spot for a weekend meal.

Most people hit all of the shops and Main St. but miss the few gems on the side streets. Caffe Tosi is one of them. Honestly, this should be higher than #6 in St. Joseph (January 2016). It is a little pricey for a cafe but if you order creatively you can keep the cost down. We love the minestrone... More

I have visited Caffe Tosi for years. The food is locally sourced and excellent. The bakery items are from Bit o Swiss. Sandwiches are excellent. Breakfast is our family favorite.

Inside is very small but they have great daily specials and the minestrone is awesome. Lots of Italian dessert. Also recommend the pesto and pea salad. Very tasty.

Highly recommended by the Painted Turtle Inn staff for great food. My wife and I went to the restaurant and felt we were some VIP with their constant attentive care.

It is small, unique, and you don't really notice it until you either "stumble" upon it or someone recommended it to you. If you have to use the bathroom facilities, you have to ask where it is at. It is not out in the public area, but behind the counter and near the kitchen.

Locals love this little cafe downtown because it serves the same fare as its bigger cousin, Tosi's restaurant, and I should know because I'm a local. From the malfatti to heaven-sent minestrone soup, Caffe Tosi is a great place for a latte and a scone if you are not too hungry for brunch. Caffe Tosi is busy, but if you... More

The food was below average and overpriced, bland and low quality ingredients. There were many flies around. They charge extra for standard condiments such as mustard. The cookies were stale. I can't think of anything positive to say about this place.

One of my favorite places in St. Joe! My husband and I have been going there in the mornings for the breakfast croissant sandwich for years! Then I also love going here for lunch with a friend. The minestrone soup is a Must-Have, not only tasty but relatively healthy too. And I can never seem to pass on the coffee.... More
