I work as an usher downtown, for the opera and symphony. Always make time to stop at Caffe Frascati for a latte or iced coffee. The atmosphere reminds me of our trips to Italy.

This is a very cute coffee shop that offers entertainment at night on the weekends. Their coffee is good, way better than any chain coffee shop. I wish we had more of these types of coffee shops around.

go around the corner from the overpriced coffee at Westin and marriott and gets some authentic espresso in an authentic atmosphere. this place actually feels like the cafes in Rome. looks like music at night with cheap Italian reds, whites, and Perroni on tap.

Every guide book and tourist san jose website seems to like this place, but I honestly never found any of the food or drinks here very good. In fact, I probably had one of the worst macchiatos I have ever had here in June 2016. Maybe it was just a bad barista that day. What the Caffe does have going... More

Right around the corner from one of our favorites, Original Joe's, we wanted to check out Caffe Frascati. One of us had the baguette sandwich and I had the panini. After ordering at the counter, the items were ready for us in about 5 minutes. We both enjoyed our food. Seemed like a great location for people in the 20's... More

I came to this coffee shop since it was convenient, close to San Jose Marriott where I stayed. I had high expectations because of the good reviews. Unfortunately, you could have the best coffee/food if the service is not good, it's no good! I was very disappointed that I waited 20 mins for my food. It turned out they forgot... More

I grabbed a breakfast there and was happy about the food. I was a little disappointed that there I was not able to get soy or almond milk, but the latte was hot and the atmosphere is nice inside the cafe.
