Little Italy’s First and Finest Espresso Bar.
Buon Giorno! We are located in the heart of San Diego's famed Little Italy district and inside the Award winning LA PENSIONE HOTEL. Caffe Italia is the perfect place to grab your morning cup of coffee, catch up on the news or grab a quick lunch. Family owned and operated since 1992 we are a one of a kind Espresso bar serving the perfect blends of robust coffees, cappuccinos and espressos made with Lavazza coffee beans imported from Italy. You can also select from an assortment of locally made gelato flavors that are sure to get you back for more.
At lunch time we offer a made to order selection of salads, Italian panini sandwiches and more. Relax with a newspaper or magazine while sitting out on the sidewalk or courtyard and listen to the gentle sounds of the fountain or just people watch. Come see us on Sundays when we feature our Award Winning Sunday Brunch Waffle Bar. Free Wireless Internet is available. Just ask your barista how to log on.
Caffe Italia has been twice-awarded The Best Sunday Brunch-Waffle Bar by San Diego Reader, Best Place for a Sugar Fix by Metropolitan Magazine and Best Coffee by City Search. We hope you enjoy your visit to Caffe Italia. Come back and see us soon.
