“Good coffee, nice setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

It is a great coffee place but a little pricey. Good place to meet your online match for a informal date.

“Not Quite the SF Treat - but close”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Used to frequent Cafe Trieste in SF - a lot...Loved it. This site is good - very popular and the only coffee house for blocks - making it a bit of an oasis. It's fine - not dazzling or unique. Music on random nights.

“Reliably great espresso drinks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I am a coffee freak and I go to Trieste frequently. I find the flavor profile of their espresso to be reliably excellent. They have a loose, genuine coffee-house atmosphere and a great selection of baked goods. Parking can be difficult, but I'm always willing to walk a few blocks for their "Depth Charge" -- coffee with two added shots.

“Great Food & Desserts !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Great Staff who remember my complicated coffee order. Wonderful sandwiches, soups, and oh yes the Deserts are delicious too. Musical entertainment many nights of the week.
This location is the Berkeley offshoot of the original Caffe Trieste in San Francisco's North Beach. Note no WiFi available. Bathroom is so-so...otherwise EXCELLENT place !
