Three of us had an enjoyable and delicious lunch at Cafe Borrone. There were available tables both outside and indoors but it was a bit chilly so we opted for inside. There was a long line waiting to order but before long, we were in the front of the line. There were two cashiers and behind them, all of the... More

I just had an espresso at Café Borrone, but it was definitely worth the long queue - it was the very best espresso I had in California!

Borrone's serves up some of the best small plates for breakfast and lunch! The cafe is large with spacious indoor and outdoor seating, a street-side hot spot that feels removed from the rest of the bustling world! I'd recommend stopping in on a Saturday or Sunday morning with a friend or significant other... it's a great spot for a meaningful... More

This is almost a cult place. People love it. The lines on weekends are long. The food is ok, but not notabale.

I thought my buttermilk pancakes were truly superb... ultra light and delicate. The berries on top were all perfect as well. Atmosphere is bustling. Service is efficient and friendly. Great experience all around.

We are constantly in awe of the across-the-board excellence of menu AND service! Everything is of the highest quality, and even when mobbed ( which is always), the service is appropriately rapid. We adore it and wish something of its ilk existed in Weston.

For a regular I'm sure this place is a solid staple, but as a wanderer I found it a challenge. Let's start with the good. Clean, open air patio, helpful staff, and a genuine feel. Now the challenge. As someone who knew very little about this place I felt lost. I tried to grab a seat on the patio and... More

Mediocre overpriced drip coffee just so you can sit outside. Food is average. But the beer is great. A real landmark for MP but way over rated.

Great breakfast, there is indoor and outdoor seating. Delicious quiches, waffles, bread, cakes, fruit bowl, all kind of coffees. Enough to choose! Cozy place.
