A morning doesn’t go by for me, without a cup of coffee within 30 minutes of waking,but preferably within 5! We’re staying in Burlingame, CA., and our Airbnb is only 3 blocks to an Italian tradition on Broadway called il piccolo caffe. Wide open doors welcome you to an European setting that offers great coffee and a great Italian looking atmosphere. Since we are going shopping on Union Street later, I stared wth a small brew to wake up. The coffee tastes rich and full bodied and their friendly staff make you want to return. Later we ventured over to Artis in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of S.F. Yum, great latte and specialty sweets! It has a modern aesthetic and roasts it’s beans fresh with every order! They call it “Live Roast.” Great start to a to a day of wondering the local boutiques.
