Borrone Cafe Reviews

  • ChefMozCafe Borrone offers consistent, delicious food and pastries (menu + specials don't change much over time), a wide choice of good coffee drinks (make sure you get yours with their whip cream) with an enjoyable atmosphere (plenty of outdoor seating). Saturday nights (usually with live jazz) and Sunday mornings are very popular. Cheapest eggs in town.
