I just heard that Oliveto is serving breakfast 7 days a week in the cafe downstairs. Any reports so far?

    The egg and pancetta pizza is amazing. The perfect combo of salty, chewy, and yolky (if that's a word.) Also, one of the better cappuccino's I have had. Great way to start a sunday morning.

    Run, don't walk.

      This isn't anything new, the downstairs cafe has been serving breakfast for years. I'm a huge fan of the egg and pancetta pizza, but the pastries are good too.

        A wonderful start to the day, perfect stop on the way to Rockridge BART. The polenta, egg dishes are very good--same attention to quality of ingredients and careful execution as their lunch and evening menu. Great morning pastries--danish, muffins, scones (flavors of all of the preceding change daily), morning buns and cornetti (Italian croissant with apricot filling)--with tiny ramekins of butter and preserves, good but not great coffee, the warm ambience of the downstairs cafe and straight-ahead jazz at soft volume in the background.

          One of my friends has gone a few times and thought it was really good. He raved about the egg and pancetta pizza.
