A coffee roastery tells you everything about a coffee place, that these are dedicated people who take coffee seriously. You will be delighted by their deliciousness. This is especially true for Caffe Roma as it's also family owned and the people here are really friendly. They make excellent and espresso drinks from the most authentic espresso, to a cappuccino, or in a warm sunny afternoon, an affogato that will sing into your day! They also carry sandwiches, pastries and biscotti, cookies.CaffeRoma

The old fashion fans and the doors on both ends of the cafe makes refreshing crisp air flow. Brown and white photographs on walls, soccer memorabilia, oldie music, patrons who are reading a book, newspaper, or on laptops are all in this spacious but also intimate atmosphere. And TV (sound muted) is on all time with good sports games.

Caffe Roma makes North Beach a real Italian feel with a spin of true San Franciscan joy. And if drinking a cup is not enough to satisfy you, they have a great selection of beans that you can get to brew at home! My favorite is the Sicilian Gold with its dark, smooth and rich taste. You can also see the giant roasting machine by the front entrance.

After having brunch and a nice hike up to Coit Tower, we were craving something sweet. We stumbled across Caffe Roma and were impressed by the charming café right away. We ordered cannolis with a "Situation" to drink and everything was wonderful. Will definitely be going back when in the city for some more authentic Italian pastries and service.

Delicious cappucino great breakfast sandwiches (try the good egg or the Pacifica ciabatta). Friendly service, though we had a bit of a line.

When we were in San Francisco three years ago we took a "Taste of a Little Italy" tour. During the tour we were introduced to a Cafe where the coffee was roasted on site. We love coffee but the experience of that day blew us away it was so good. We vowed, should we return to the area to seek out the cafe. Well we did, it is still there and the coffee is still out of this world. Caffe Roma's puts all "chain" companies in the shade and long may it continue. The Caprese's were very good as well. Go there, talk to the friendly staff and enjoy. The true taste of Italy.
