Caffe Trieste, San Francisco, CA

Caffe Trieste Restaurant Review

: Since 1956, an eclectic clientele of bohemians, locals and tourists have gathered at this North Beach landmark for coffee drinks and pastries. A nice lunch can be had from one of the limited number of sandwiches, such as turkey or ham and cheese on focaccia. The company imports and distributes its own coffee beans in a retail shop next door. On the last Saturday of the month, the restaurant holds a family concert. Also located at 2500 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley, 510-548-5198; and 4045 Piedmont Ave., Oakland, 510-985-1202.
