Best Caffe In The Area
By janepolk on 7/21/2012
I have been going to Max Caffe for a few years now and I am never dissapointed. From crostinis to paninis everything is absolutely delicious. The staff is so caring and go to all lengths to please the customers. The feel is great. The seating is great. There is a large variety. From sofas, to chairs, to tables, to outdoor seating. What is there not to love about Max Caffe?! I strongly recommend that all should try it out whether for breakfast, lunch, or a glass of wine!
Make a savory memory...

For the individual or group wishing to enjoy a delightful combination of fresh Mediterranean tapas and homemade sangria amidst the charm of an in/outdoor art house. Have a cafecito and read the paper or bring your laptop and plug in while seated in a plush art deco chair/sofa. The only true disappointment is closing time...
Cozy and comfortable

I really like Max CaffÃ© and have gone there repeatedly. The food is fantastic, and all very crostini, gelato, panini - esque. The homemade iced tea is a must have, while I personally do not enjoy the goat cheese and avocado crostini. I know it sounds good, but I don't like it. Also, the couches, music, tilted mirror, sidewalk area, and pressed-tin roof pretty much sell it for me. It's very unpretentious. I had a small private party there, which definitely was a good idea, and everybody enjoyed it. (Also a good decision if the pizza next door, yes you know, is closed. And don't forget to visit the Trattoria on the corner, where they have fantastic Lobster ravioli and more of the iced tea. Albeit the line may be longer in peak hours.) Say hi to Maria

The food is consistently fresh and good. The prices are just rights and the staff is friendly. The Avocado Crostini is a must.
Great feel to the place

nice wines...great service.....nice panini with mortadella, asiago, and avocado - served with a watercress and tomato salad (which could have used a touch more oil to balance out the acidity) the best thing about it was the atmosphere, though...comfy sofas, dark corners, quiet....
Lots of frills, no substance

Cozy ambience, prompt service, but unfortunately miniscule portions of overpriced unoriginal food (salad wasn't even served with bread!). Thouroughly disappointing.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
