Caffé La Scala

Since 1994, Caffè La Scala has been the premier European café of the East Bay. Evocative of the cafés found in Milan, Paris and Vienna, from morning till late night one can always find their favorite coffees, breakfast pastries, a light meal made with the finest ingredients, desserts, a glass of wine, Champagne or an apéritif. For the comfort of our clientèle, a large terrasse is available, as well as a range of newspapers and magazines.

Coffee is real good when you drink it it gives you time to think. It’s a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.
— Gertrude Stein
