Affogato Affront

We have always liked Cafe Borrone. But since they have no e-mail address on their website (consider this a demotion in stars, too!) I am posting publicly how disappointed we were with the affogatos last night.

Affogatos should be a fun, festive drink. In the style to which we're accostomed--from It's Italia in Half Moon Bay--this lively dessert dish should be served as follows: big scoop of well-frozen, high-quality vanilla ice cream in a large martini-shaped glass with whipped cream and shaved dark chocolate. A little maple syrup-type pitcher with 3 oz of espresso is served on the side. The guest pours the espresso over the ice cream in several installations and eats w/ a spoon.

The CB version was in a coffee mug with about a milliliter of coffee and no shaved chocolate (despite asking if I could have a chunk of chcoclate to shave w/ their nutmeg grinder--felt like the tuna sandwich scene in Five Easy Pieces). I was horrified to see the counter guy scoop half-melted Dreyer's into my cup when the menu board had promised Haagen Dasz! He said they ran out of HD. Hmmm. Do I believe that? So we had a drab, minimally-coffee'd, mushy, melted mess in a mundane mug.

SO disappointing. Please learn how to make a proper affogato!!

great coffee and ambiance

Cafe Borrones is a great coffee shop and restaurant. It has a great seating arrangement inside and out. I would highly recommend.

Great spot!

This is a great cafe and is located right next to Kepler's--one of the best bookstores in the area. Although very crowded at times, it's a great place to catch up with friends.

Great location but overpriced food!

Great location, great patio, cheerful cashiers and (usually) friendly waitstaff. But that doesn't justify the overpriced food ($6.50 for a green salad? $0.50 to add whipped cream to your drink?). But there isn't a better place in Menlo Park for meeting friends
