Cafe Pastiche Will Make Your Tastebuds Samba

Pastiche 001

It smells like home.

Even if you didn’t grow up in a Brazilian family, this cozy café smells like home. It is warm. The service is gracious. The food is comforting and filling.

Ok – it is way better than home.

Pastiche 017Frank De Assis moved to the U.S. more than 20 years ago and has been working in the restaurant business. Earlier this year he and his wife Val purchased the former Delicias Bakery at 11 Kearney Square downtown and have filled the cases and buffet tables with their scratch-made family recipes.

Pastiche 015Soups, salads and sandwiches, fried sweet corn and cream cheese filled croquettes from heaven, coconut and condensed milk treats, custom-made birthday cakes, sweet breads, Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao De Queijo) , tropical fruit smoothies, cappuccino, and a rich hot chocolate that tastes like love.   

Pastiche 048The café offers a lunch and dinner buffet and offers a 10 percent student discount, free wi-fi and comfortable seating.
