The Caffe has clearly been a favorite of performers in the nearby California Theater. It's a bit of a cultural oasis in downtown San Jose. Latte's are served with a flair, some great looking pastry as well.

They offer a quiche and salad combo for less than $10. Happy hour wine bargains are also good. We eat here before going to the California Theater which is just a couple of doors down the street. They have wi-fi and also have local musicians (acoustic) several times per week.

Enjoy the breakfast well. The tiramisu matches the americano well. The panini veggies is also satisfying.

Went here for breakfast and had a great choice of croissants, bagels and muffins. Had the croissant with egg cheese and ham which was just what was needed and good coffee to go with it. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

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.
