Reviews for Caffè Chiave

A great F2F meeting spot! My colleague and I met with a patron who lives in Piedmont. Ample parking (metered) and outside covered seating in the back. Good strong coffee. Lost a star. Couldn't find a restroom, but walked over the the grocery store for relief.

Came today for a late lunch with parents. I ordered a Cesar salad with chicken, mom got the fried chicken special panini, both of which were not good. Not sure how you mess up a salad but it had way too much dressing on it. Was drenched, in fact. Croutons tasted like there was chemicals on it which was disgusting and made me not even wanna eat the rest of it. Chicken tasted like rubber. Not sure what happened with the fried chicken special my mom had but she didn't finish it full review
I am so disappointed. This use to be my favorite and I would come here weekly. I can tell you a few things that changed.This avocado breakfast is super greasy. The egg use to be sunny side and almost cooked like it was poached. The bread was overcooked amd the potatoes are no longer the purples, reds, and light brown medley with rosemary seasoning. I also use to have arugula included as a garnish and the presentation use to be so much better. I would have rated them a 4.5 full review
