    They accept credit cards now! Visit their sister cafe, Cafe Lambretta, for more food options.

    If you have time to hang out for a bit, get the Cento (not available to go). Similar to a cappuccino, but with a bit less milk foam.

    Tasty latte. Cash only. Too bad that they don't have enough pastry choices to complete my breakfast.

    Cash only, but drinks come quick and the coffee is delicious. Cute spot with two small tables outside for standing around to have your espresso with.

    Not too important when going in to get great coffee, but they played awesome music on my last visit. Had a happy retro rockabilly vibe and that made my experience more warm and welcoming.

    Cento is one of those places when you're old and gray and run into someone somewhere and you both worked south of market "back in the day" and connect with "omigod of course Cento was the best ever!"

    While the baristas here tend to be less friendly and talkative than folks at other shops, they make excellent espresso drinks and their prices are affordable compared to other places.

    Nifty little alley coffee shop. Detach from your desk, take a stroll and grab a mid-afternoon boost, get back to the office to enjoy that tasty beverage while being all productivey.

    The soy milk here always gets curdle-y in my cappuccino. Stick with the cow-stuff if you can.
