A coffee roastery tells you everything about a coffee place, that these are dedicated people who take coffee seriously. You will be delighted by their deliciousness. This is especially true for Caffe Roma as it’s also family owned and the people here are really friendly. They make excellent and espresso drinks from the most authentic espresso, to a cappuccino, or in a warm sunny afternoon, an affogato that will sing into your day! They also carry sandwiches, pastries and biscotti, cookies.
The old fashion fans and the doors on both ends of the cafe makes refreshing crisp air flow. Brown and white photographs on walls, soccer memorabilia, oldie music, patrons who are reading a book, newspaper, or on laptops are all in this spacious but also intimate atmosphere. And TV (sound muted) is on all time with good sports games.
Caffe Roma makes North Beach a real Italian feel with a spin of true San Franciscan joy. And if drinking a cup is not enough to satisfy you, they have a great selection of beans that you can get to brew at home! My favorite is the Sicilian Gold with its dark, smooth and rich taste. You can also see the giant roasting machine by the front entrance.

Review: Not your typical inexpensive local Thai joint. It’s upscale gourmet Thai with multiple layers. The dishes were on the smaller portion.
Deep fried duck egg “salad” was fairly good with very garden fresh taste, hot wings were also good with a small spicy and sweet kick. Rabbit curry was more delicate and while not a lot of taste to the meat, the sauce was excellent! Complimentary white or brown rice.
Drink wise, it’s by the Trick Dog team. While the drinks (more…)

Review: Food trucks have been a hype for a few years. Generally the food is expensive for its quantity and quality and lacks restaurant style service especially at food parks where those are folding tables and chairs except the SOMA Food truck park that’s a stationary, but wows for novelty and convenience and variety.

Review: So the coffee was pretty good, and the super dim light place is artistic at best, but you must know that the coffee was somewhat steep pricey and the pastries were not cheap either. A quick stop will cost you 8 bucks with $3.25 for a cap and rest for a pastry and tax.
