I think this review needs an upgrade.
I visited Tutto’s Continental on a Wednesday(today) just after 5 as the Italian Bakery had turned off their coffee machine. My lucky day! The coffee was only $3 for a small and while I was waiting I was offered free freshly cooked Pizza. It was simple but the taste was so fresh and beautiful. The best Pizza I have had since I was in my teens (quite a few years ago:) ) The people were very friendly and it was a lovely atmosphere sitting outside under the large awning. Simple and a lovely. I drank my coffee as I walked home and it was really nice, not bitter and made with organic milk. I told my neighbor as soon as I got home about my experience and so we will be going there for a visit in the near future.
I’m also going to take my son who is a barista to get his opinion. Everyone is different.
Ciao for now, Annie.

On the same strip as the Italian Continental Bakery and Cafe, and Bruno’s Truffels, but about half a block up the hill, is Tutto’s Continental. This establishment started as a kitchenware shop/delicatessan, and has gradually expanded to serve coffees and now I believe sandwiches on the tables outside.

If you are only interested in the coffee, it’s not great. Bitter, and not smooth by a long shot. I would have hoped for more from an Italian deli. Maybe it’s me. I’d be interested to read other reviews.

Tutto’s Continental has a huge clientele which come far and wide for the Italian delicatessan range (with good reason). Customers are sometimes served out of turn, which is frustrating when you’ve been waiting awhile. On Saturday mornings, I don’t even bother. Speaking Italian may help get the staff’s attention.

Foodies will enjoy the range of cooking ingredients and Italian packaged food. Don’t miss the fridge and freezer, either. I swear by the frozen lasagnes. The range of kitchenware is huge, but expensive and a little faddish.

    Took a remarkably long time to place an order during a fairly quiet period but coffee came quickly thereafter. Decent strong cappuccino. Delicious soft cannoli which is worth a trip just for this alone.

    Bruno’s Truffels is one of the most unique bakeries out there and for many reasons. They make authentic sour dough bread, really nice pastries and not to mention his famous chocolates and specialties that is absolutely top quality. This place focuses on…

    Espresso was far too bitter to drink, should have ordered a latte.

    Coffee, flat white, pretty much ok, food good. Ben and his crew very personable. Lots of regulars all known by name.

    The service was very poor and this justifies the low rating. The coffee was generic and drinkable. But the poor service brings it way way down.

    Don’t like to judge this harshly but the milk was burnt and the coffee was bitter :(
