There is no other coffee to compare with Cafe Trieste. This is where you will find the perfect latte, cappuccino, and Italian pastries...

Nothing fancy but a great place to take a break and hang out in Little Italy. Several people seemed to be regulars so you had the sense that this was more of a regular neighborhood cafe rather than a typical overpriced San Franciso cafe. Would...More

of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian

Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
