Nice sidewalk-deli-cafe type of feel. excellent food/desserts/beer/wine on hand. Busy vibe to the place, and one of the very best tradjazz bands (most Fridays) that you'll hear anywhere!

Catch an independent film at the Guild and walk over to Borrone for a great artichoke quiche and Arnold Palmer tea on a hot day. You're not in Kansas any more... A slice of quiche is around $13 for a thick slice and tong full of greens. Wine seems to start at $10 a glass. Lively outside atmosphere. Wear a... More

Had the most delicious scrambled eggs with mushrooms (a yummy variety) and cream cheese (?) at Cafe Borrone last week. It may have been a special but I hope it becomes a staple on the menu.

Our family group of nine enjoyed lunch here. The food was great, the outdoor seating a nice complement to the food. Servings were ample and the food quality very good. I had the (mild flavor) Italian sausage sandwich -- the baguette was completely covered with sausages sliced down the middle, and marinara and melted cheese over all. The sandwich exceeded... More

Been coming here since it opened over 30 years ago and the Frosted Mocha is still the same yummy decadence. Prices have gone up over the years as expected, but the quality stayed consistent. Service can be slow and finding an free table a challenge when it gets busy (which is often, especially on the weekends). The open feel and... More

This is a community favorite and a regular stop for my family and friends. Baron has an excellent selection of delicious and healthy food and plenty of seating on a sunny plaza. Stay as long as you like, read, people watch and enjoy a glass of wine or beer.
