San Jose’s Caffe Trieste has been reborn as Cafe Frascati. The name comes from a hill town near Rome where owner Roger Springall spent time and was inspired by Italian food and culture. The name also reflects the fact that it is no longer a franchise of the San Francisco–based Caffe Trieste. Springall will still serve Caffe Trieste coffee but may serve other brands as well. Along with the name change, look for new branding and colors as well as a lounge-ier upstairs mezzanine.
In addition to skillfully prepared lattes, espressos, cappuccino and macchiato, the menu includes sandwiches, Italian pastries, muffins, bagels, salads, light fare and focaccia, as well as Italian beers and popular microbrews, and wine by the glass or bottle.
