Searching for free wi-fi, Danesi coffee, a view from the mezzanine overlooking North Beach, housemade pastries, and peace and quiet (except when there's a soccer game)? Look no further than Cavalli caffe in North Beach.
This historic book store serves up coffee and light snacks. Didn't try 'em, but the panini and salads sound scrumptious.
I did give in to a filled-to-order cannolo and an iced coffee on a hot day and was very happy.
What else have 'hounds tried here? Tell us about the Sicilian cheesecake, tiramisu . . .
