Every guide book and tourist san jose website seems to like this place, but I honestly never found any of the food or drinks here very good. In fact, I probably had one of the worst macchiatos I have ever had here in June 2016. Maybe it was just a bad barista that day. What the Caffe does have going... More

I grabbed a breakfast there and was happy about the food. I was a little disappointed that there I was not able to get soy or almond milk, but the latte was hot and the atmosphere is nice inside the cafe.
