“Ideal for brunch and lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Caffe Sapore serves freshly prepared foods in a quiet location near Lombard Street. In addition to the spacious, slightly cavernous interior, there are a number of outside tables.
Open sandwiches on bagels are one of their specialities and The Bomb was sensational. We would cross San Fran to eat here again.

“Great breakfast just down of Lombard St. famous gardens.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

Caffe sapore's owner is a great master of european and mediterranean food and know how to share this knowledge at the best with its customers.
I think the place is perfect for a breakfast, especially for people visiting Lombard Street as it it just down of the famous gardens. Stop here after a walk dow and have a delicious french croissant or a tasty fresh salad.
I really enjoied the cappuccino at the outside table while reading news,
Wi-fi OK.

“Fresh (slow, not fast) food, outdoor seating, free wifi and tap beer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011 via mobile

Delicious bagels, foccacias and salad choices. Heaps of tables in a corner-set, light-filled cafe. The food isn't quick so settle in with a pint of local beer and watch the tourists flood down the street. Once your food arrives you'll be pleased with your choice!
