“Great neighborhood coffee shop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Support the local! Cheaper than Starbucks! Coffee was awesome! Cappuccino was awesome! All the pastries and muffins look delicious! The staff is always nice and makes sure everyone is happy, even if there is a line!

“Found a small piece of Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Here is a small piece of real Italy in a small town. The place reminded me of many of the little coffee shops I have visited in Italy.

They know how to pull a shot and make a solid espresso. I also recommend the shortbread cookies with the camel in the middle.

Also free wifi helps.

“Great coffee, great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Coffee here is the best. Many drinks to choose from and lots of homemade snacks. The service is always good and the people are so friendly. This is just the best place to get a cuppa java!

“The Best Coffee in Burlingame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I'm hesitant to even put this review online because this is kind of a local secret. It's right across from Starbucks on Broadway and the coffee and service are unparalleled. Dave is super cool and their coffee beans are superb. The Bagel Plate with Lox is pretty much perfect but don't order until 8:30AM when the additional staff arrives with fresh produce. I make a point of going here every time I'm in town.

“Decent if unexciting Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Stopped in for lunch on the way to catch a flight at SFO. This is a tiny little restaurant on Broadway, and while the food was fine it was certainly a step down from what we'd eaten in North Beach a few days before. Wouldn't go out of my way to eat here, but wouldn't refuse to come back either.
