Cafè Barbera is the oldest Italian coffee brand with an history of over 150 years & a premium coffee chain with locations all over the world!

Cafè Barbera features a wide variety of hot and cold espresso, macchiato, cappucino and latte drinks, as well as specialty coffees with flavorful syrups, sauces, chilled foam milk and fancy organic toppings with a menu of over 40 coffee beverages.

All of our coffee drinks are prepared by baristas on manual espresso machines – no automatic push buttons! Each barista goes through extensive training and education in our coffee and brewing techniques before they’re ready to make a hand-crafted coffee drink to our standards.

Along with the highest quality freshly roasted coffee products, each Cafè Barbera offers a variety of locally sourced, fresh, healthy Italian and Mediterranean food items like pastries, hot and cold sandwiches on Panini and Ciabatta breads, and a large array of freshly made pastas, soups and salads.
