Caffe Trieste was the first espresso bar on the West Coast, and a longtime haunt of San Francisco poets and artists. Witness coffee being made by hand in the massive vintage 1920s roaster, and then sip some as you watch the thoroughfare on Columbus Ave. Since it is run by a family with a long musical tradition, Caffe Trieste holds concerts every Saturday afternoon. Long a meeting place of Old Italian flavors and San Franciscan Bohemia, Caffe Trieste is the place to get your regular caffeine fix in a uniquely North Beach venue.
