This little cafe is wonderful. Nice sandwiches, salads, coffee and desserts. Try the portugese sausage pannini and some bread pudding. You won't need to eat for the rest of the day!

I met 3 colleagues for lunch here; we chose the restaurant because of the delightful reviews on this website. We were thrilled with our choice!

While 2 of us were waiting for the others, some kind people at the next table explained that we had to go to the counter to order, but the food would be delivered. We explained we were waiting for 2 others. They said they were at this restaurant all the time, and wanted to ensure people knew to not wait for a waiter to take their order.

There was a nice variety of sandwiches, soups, and salads. Everyone enjoyed their chioce very much. Everything was very fresh. Joe, the owner, came to our table 4 times. The first time Joe asked if we'd ever been in his restaurant before. He welcomed us enthusiastically. The next time, he brought us a sample of Portugeuse cheese and sausage. The next time he brought us a sample of a custard-type dessert. Yum! Then he brought us a glass of white port to sample.

On the way out the door, Joe showed us all the home made desserts! They were baked in these big pans that my Grandmas used to use. The next time we go there (and there will definitely be a next time), I'll start with dessert first. : )

Joe showed us a CD that he recorded. He sings one night a week in the evening -- I think Saturdays.

What a delightful experience. We were meeting before a memorial service -- we felt uplifted when we left. We'll be back.

Our only suggestion for Joe is that he try to get signage near Baseline Rd. I've driven by this shopping center countless times, and have been in the grocery store there, but had never seen this restaurant! It's tucked back in the corner on the west side of the center.

Whenever we go to Mt. Baldy, we stop at the Euro Cafe for breakfast at least one time. Since the lodge where we stay does not have refrigerators in the cabins, we have to order light in order to avoid wasted leftovers. On the most recent trip, we ordered the veggie omelette and omelette panini. They came with a side of fruit or potatoes. Really delicious and filling. For our family of four, this was an adequate breakfast. Of course, I also order the delicious coffee. The adorable, handsome young man at the counter was just a bonus to an already delightful breakfast.

This little café is a true gem. It’s hidden in the corner of Claremont and their food is exquisite. Everything they serve is filled with flavor that originates with fresh ingredients, timely preparation, and old-world recipes.

Their baked good are delicious. The scones are crisp and dry (as opposed to the bready and moist versions served at popular coffee shops) and are specifically made to complement coffee/tea. The cinnamon rolls look like mini volcanoes that ooze cinnamon through a sugary sweet glaze that is much lighter than frosting. Other baked goods abound all made with traditional European flavors in mind.

Lunch consists of sandwiches, stews, salads based on a Portuguese tradition. The sandwiches are made with fresh bread, cured ham, and crispy green lettuce. The salads are served with unique dressings such as berry-flavored vinaigrettes. As for the stews and other lunch dishes, I had lunch with a Portuguese friend who chose this place from the entire foothill area, spanning from San Bernardino to Covina, as being the best Portuguese restaurant around. While I’m sure about his claim, I can vouch for the great food that this little café serves.
