Walk in here every evening and get your lame work done while the locals perform.. Resist the beer and walk out for food.. that's what everybody does.. Good value for time and money.. don't forget to tip handsomely.. Have fun

Enjoy the breakfast well. The tiramisu matches the americano well. The panini veggies is also satisfying.

Centrally located cafe in San Jose for business meeting. It's a no fuss cafe. Quick drinks. Quick meeting. Business done!

Went here for breakfast and had a great choice of croissants, bagels and muffins. Had the croissant with egg cheese and ham which was just what was needed and good coffee to go with it. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I work as an usher downtown, for the opera and symphony. Always make time to stop at Caffe Frascati for a latte or iced coffee. The atmosphere reminds me of our trips to Italy.

This is a very cute coffee shop that offers entertainment at night on the weekends. Their coffee is good, way better than any chain coffee shop. I wish we had more of these types of coffee shops around.

go around the corner from the overpriced coffee at Westin and marriott and gets some authentic espresso in an authentic atmosphere. this place actually feels like the cafes in Rome. looks like music at night with cheap Italian reds, whites, and Perroni on tap.

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
