Caffe Trieste serves superb coffee drinks, gourmet pastries, and a light Italian menu in a casual setting. We offer breakfast all day in addition to lunch and dinner. We have a complete selection of drip coffees as well as our hallmark Italian Roast Espresso, flavored mocha, and decaf varieties.
In 1950, Caffe Trieste’s founder, Giovanni Giotta, emigrated to San Francisco from the small fishing town of Rovigno, Italy. Missing the espresso houses of Trieste, Giotta opened his own cafe in San Francisco in 1956. Said to be the first espresso house on the West Coast, it served up optimum quality espresso coffee and fabulous music for well over a half a century. And then, Caffe Trieste brought its fabulous coffee and tradition to the Monterey Peninsula.
