Great place for coffee. They have small, medium and as big as your head cappuccino's, that are fabulous. We also had an almond croissant that was sinfully wonderful. The guys that work there are great also. Highly recommend!

A quick stop for coffee. The barista was super nice and friendly -- which made us to enjoy the coffee a bit more. Two coffees + tips were about $7 USD. The coffee was great.

It appears that Caffe Greco may be good for coffee and desert. Unfortunately we were looking for more. We were looking for deli sandwiches, but wanted to get out of the cold of having to sit at an outdoor table that nearby delis were offering....More

We had 2 coffees gelato and a slice of lemon cake for $20. It seems to be a tourist place as it is cash only and to me just average. I have had better gelato in Florida.

Every time we come to this area, we make a point of stopping in Caffe Greco. Wonderful break with one of the best latte's anywhere, and their croissants are very good too!

I had a caprese salad and gelato and my husband had a pannini and some kind of decadent chocolate cake! Such a treat! Great service, friendly staff, cute little tables on the street. Loved it!

We were strolling around the city - just the wife and I. Stopped into the Saints Peter and Paul church and after leaving were craving some coffee, expresso something to pick us up. Really glad we stopped into Caffe Greco - could just feel it...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
