LOVED this place. Exactly what I was looking for. Real Italians cooking awesome breakfast food. Had a wonderful meal here before an interview. Loved the cozy atmosphere, would definitely come back if I'm in the area. Perfect spot for someone looking for better-than-average breakfast.

Great Italian place for a very casual breakfast or lunch. Tootsies is tucked away at the Stanford Barn. Offerings include all of the expected coffee drinks, pastries, panini, salads and other entrees. Almost all of the seating is outdoors.
