San Francisco Cappuccino Cafes – Espresso Bars Reviews
Caffe Trieste North Beach Review
This historic caffe location at 601 Vallejo Street was the first espresso coffee house established on the West Coast (1956). It has become famous across the world for its combination of essences: Old Italy, Bohemian poets, art and music, and excellent Espresso. They are, thus, the Espresso Pioneers of the West Coast. The caffe has served as a movie set for many feature films and has been the subject of many documentaries across the globe. The walls are adorned with pictures of many famous celebrities who have visited the caffe (some are regular customers) as well as of the hundreds of musical events the various members of the Giotta family have participated in.
The menu includes Italian pastries, muffins, bagels, desserts, sandwiches, salads, pizza and focaccia, all served in a family atmosphere. Wine and beer are served. The Giotta Family’s famous Saturday afternoon concert takes place each week. The caffe, along with its sister location in Sausalito, serves over 600,000 cups of coffee per year. Caffe Trieste is where the true ambiance of North Beach begins.
Coffee beans, brewers, accessories and Trieste merchandise are also available in the retail store (“Annex”) located adjacent to the North Beach Caffe location.

Cafe Divine San Francisco Cappuccino Cafe Review
1600 Stockton Street. on Washington Square – North Beach
San Francisco, CA 94133
Dinner Reservations 9am – 9pm Monday – Friday 9am – 11pm Weekends
A charming, new San Francisco Cappuccino cafe (in the old Malvina’s location) has opened its doors, on the corner of Washington Square Park. Rather than the usual cappuccino cafe, this new venture provides full service of breakfast, lunch and moonlit dinners at one of the best locations in the city. Romantic and fun, Cafe Divine’s menu offers both Prix Fixe dinners for a reasonable $19., as well as individual selections. We recommend a starter of oven roasted mussels or perhaps an arugula salad with roasted beets, served with goat cheese & pistachio. Oven fired pizzetta’s include our favorite, Paradiso topped with fontina, forest mushrooms, basil & truffle oil. Sandwiches include a delicious smoked turkey & bacon, with avocado and tomato focaccia. There are daily pasta specials to choose from. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, beginning at 4pm, they serve oysters, billed as Heaven on the Half Shell. Heavenly desserts included our favorite, old-fashioned Root Beer Float for two. You might enjoy a fruit galette or Cloud Nine cheesecake with sour cream.
Cafe Divine is fast becoming a favorite destination for brunch on-the-park. There is a good selection of coffee concoctions, cafe Au Lait, espresso, cappuccino and Chai Latte, also herbal teas.
North Beach is San Francisco’s favorite walk-around neighborhood. Known as the city’s “Little Italy”, it is also the home of the Beatnik poets, (City Light’s Books, Vesuvio’s, Specs, Tosca Cafe), the North Beach Fair, Columbus Day Italian Heritage celebration, jazz, (Pearl’s Jazz) rock & roll (The Saloon) and comedy clubs such as (the Purple Onion), and live stage performance (Beach Blanket Babylon, PeC1a Pacha Mama). So, if your walking around North Beach on a day’s outing, stop by for a cappuccino or a glass of wine, and experience the nice atmosphere of the Cafe Divine.
Friendly, efficient service
