I live in San Diego, but we once took back-to-back cruises leaving out of San Diego and on my day in port I walked to Little Italy and enjoyed some Italian ambiance.

Order a latte in a glass and you might be surprised at the artful foam you’ll get in the tall glass. Its beauty reminded me of a favorite cappuccino in Naples. It’s said that we eat with our eyes first and, with this drink, you’ll drink with your eyes first. It’s a visual presentation you won’t want to miss.

While waiting to order, listen for Italian spoken around you. After getting your coffee, head to the back of the cafe to a small, secret courtyard tucked away with an Italian mural.

Travel to Italy without jet lag and enjoy outstanding espresso and, if you feel like indulging, some gelato. If you are the proud owner of an Entertainment coupon book, they have a 2-for-1 coupon for a menu item.

Caffe Italia has free wireless and they’re dog friendly. There is metered parking nearby with free street parking on Sundays or come on a Saturday and enjoy the nearby Little Italy Farmer’s Market (
