I came here with my co-worker before going into work and I'm so happy we did. I got a croissant breakfast sandwich. It was plenty of food and tasted great. Definitely recommend.

Alfonso's was thankfully walking distance away from our AirBnB, and our first choice for a quick breakfast. = L O C A T I O N = While the restaurant is tiny, there is plenty of outdoor seating. No restrooms. = F O O D = + VEGETARIAN CREPE ($7.95): Contains tomato, artichoke, pesto, spinach, red bell pepper, avocado, and jack cheese. Unfortunately, mine came without the avocado...I chose the veggie crepe because it sounded like the avocado crepe but with additional toppings, but sadly no avocado! My friend's mole crepe was reaaaaally good. = S E R V I C E = The two men running the cafe were super nice. Only one was manning the crepe station, so our orders (three crepes) took some time to come out, but it was worth the wait. Come here for a simple, unpretentious meal at a local spot! ==== Food: 3 // Service: 4 // Environment: 3 // Price: 4

Alfonso was a pleasure to chat with. He makes an honest cappuccino and the crepes are great. I had mine plain to be sure. Thanks Al!!

Very fresh ingredients and everything cooked fresh and served hot. No fancy bells and whistles just down to earth honest good cooking, attention to details, friendliness and a good portion size. So hard to find a decent, non-pretentious place in the Bay Area these days!

Love it here! I always order the avocado one. It's only 7.95 plus tax. The place is clean, Alfonso and his son are really nice people. It is very convenient if you're in the area. It has its own parking and outside seating. Alfonso himself cooks. I highly recommend it to everyone. Support local!

The coffee was great, but the food was cold, and the omelette was supposed to have kalamata olives but had black olives instead with no warning that there was going to be a substitution. If the food had been hot, though, it probably would have been delicious.

We love Alfonso's- especially the bagel sandwich.

Back this morning for Alfonso's yummy breakfast with a dose of conversational parenting philosophy and politics. The food is great, as is the conversation. We'll be back soon.

One of my favorite go-to places when I'm in a rush for breakfast. I usually get the "Spin-Mush" omelet or the vegetarian omelet. They're almost exactly the same, but the vegetarian has red bell peppers in addition to the spinach, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms and jack cheese that are in both omelettes. Alfonso's is a tiny, little place with three very small tables crunched into the inside, but there's plenty of outdoor tables and chairs under portable awnings that are available if you want to eat there. I always get my delicious omelettes to-go, take them home and enjoy! I love that he cooks the eggs on his crepe maker, so the outer egg layer is very thin. You've gotta try Alfonso' won't be disappointed!

Alfonso's Cafe is legit what a café should be, Alfonso himself is about that cafe life, having decades of experience in this niche, so their coffee is bomb and their food options are scrumptious; and most importantly the vibes are right! Parking available in the lot itself or coin/card meters on San Pablo Ave. Good hours too.
