    I had a delicious chicken pesto panini! My tiramisù with coffee was tasty. My only complaint is that the tiramisù was a little frozen on the inside.

    Love the steak kabob. Healthy portion. Kabob, grilled veggies, basmati rice (prefer brown) salad and fresh pita bread

    Their beef kabob is certainly the very best By The Way.

    Patrick - no problem. If you still want a Greek pizza, we'll make you a Greek pizza! Just place the order with our cashier and we'll take it from there.

    Love the Margherita Pizza, Signature Salad w/Shrimp, hummus, avocado Bruchetta, Cappuccino, and Chocolate Cannoli! Not all at once though! Well maybe sometimes. ;-)

    It can get really busy on summer Friday nights, call ahead for pick up and eat by the lake!

    Try the tortellini alfredo. The sauce is really thin but doesn't make you feel like violet from willy wonka after you're done eating.

    Note that despite what the entry says, they are NOT closed (they were earlier in the year). Also they are now serving breaksfast!

    Falafel + sig salad w/shrimp + grapefruit Izze = win. If carbs are on your mind it's a Del Mar Pizza & a beer.

    The bruschetta is really good! A wonderful appetizer that several people can share, or a pretty decadent meal for one.

    Cafesano changed their menu as of 5/5/13 and removed Greek Pizza! . This is the worst decision they could have made. It hands-down carried the menu. Now it costs you almost twice as much as a custom!

    This woman will ruin your meal if your dog looks at her from outside the fence. Yelled at me for 20 minutes-management did nothing. My papillon was laying on sidewalk. She yelled when he looked @ her.

    Place will randomly shut down early, and turn away customers already in line waiting. Lots of slow service delays for simple orders. Going to avoid now for other venues.

    The Catering/Market store sucks. Gets my orders wrong frequently and VERY slow even if you order ahead. Better to go get takeout from the restaurant.

    Everything is awesome. My fav is avocado cheddar...hummus delightful. Great for kids/save your bread for ducks or buy it from Safeway next door!
