Originally opened in the late 1940’s, Cafe’tal Social Club was a popular meeting place for G.I.s returning home from World War II to socialize, play cards and drink espresso.
Cafe’tal the last social club of its kind in Little Italy has been re-opened as an Italian café-restaurant to all who want to enjoy home-styled old-world traditional Italian food.
We are honored to offer you the best quality “charcuterie” style meats, cheeses–from local markets, hand-made focaccica pizza, Panini, salads, pastries, beer, wine, Italian specialty & pasta dishes, as well as pastries and the famous Ciao Bella Gelato & Sorbet daily.
We are dedicated to maintaining quality coffee and preserving the food traditions of the old world. Our black coffee or espresso is imported from Italy and ground fresh on the premises. We also serve American “brown coffee” from local roasters as well as organic milk.
