Gelato at Caffe Trieste on Market St.
I went to Delessio this morning and noticed the new Caffe Trieste across the street. I guess it's been there a while now but I just hadn't been in the neighborhood. I tried an espresso and thought it overly bitter, but I am not a regular espresso drinker, so probably not the best judge. The cafe is pleasant and spacious. They have mediocre-looking pastries and decent-looking desserts, but what really caught my eye was the gelato. It comes from Tony Fiorello in San Rafael. In keeping with my ice-cream-for-breakfast trend, I tried the vanilla and found it pleasant. (A problem with tasting ice cream in the early a.m. is that my taste buds are not as discerning at that hour - I liked it enough that I would definitely try it again.) Anyway, I figure it's always good to know where you can get your gelato fix.
