For this beautiful month of February in honor of the Valentine (and Galantine) vibes and the Happy Lunar New Year upon us, I want to spotlight this gorgeous cafe in San Jose, California. I present to my readers, K Cafe Patisserie and Tea House! What a dreamy gem of a cafe this is! I’m in love in February and it is with this cafe! Go visit them online for official details at www.kfamlove.com .
Vibe: This a dreamy cafe with a nice balance of casual and classy! An Asian-French fusion cafe with offerings such as Breakfast/Brunch, High Tea service, and grab-n-go food and drinks.
Location/Days/Hours: The cafe’s website says hours are Tuesday – Sunday, 9AM-5PM. Yelp slightly differs: Thursday – Sunday, 9AM-8PM. Call to confirm (408) 900-0023. Address is 923 S. Bascom Ave, San Jose, CA 95128.
My visits: I visited 3 times to be exact! Twice were pre-pandemic. It was not long after their grand opening. The first time I was by myself, the 2nd time I brought one of my best friends, and once again just last week while out with my mom for a Galantine’s Sunday Funday! We enjoyed ourselves so much here! I am very glad they’re open and survived 2020! I honestly thought about them while in quarantine hoping they would be one of the blessed and lucky business to survive it all. And they did! <3 <3 <3 <3 Yay! So I brought my mom with me this time and we really enjoyed ourselves! The staff and the patrons here are very nice. Each time I have visited, it always has me in this state of beauty and awe because of how picturesque it is. It is just like a fairy tale inside and out. Of course the delicious pastries, tea, and coffee are what matters too but ambiance is everything! On this recent visit, I notice they have revamped the menu and now offer breakfast/brunch! Let me tell you, the food looks amazing and they have great reviews on yelp. I actually have not yet tried the food but I plan to on my next visit. The people eating looked very content! I have tried a few drinks and the pastries as to-go purchases.
This year I celebrated Galantine’s Day and it was one of the best weekends I have had since lunar new year began. I had been wanting to take my mom here for so long and I was finally able to! I knew she would be so taken in by all the thought that has been put into this beautiful cafe, nestled in the heart of San Jose. I was unaware they now offer food though! Whaaaa? (I’m spontaneous and often don’t visit websites before I visit a place often times….the irony since I’m sort of a blogger! I know… don’t judge me please. It’s enough to make an OCD heavy planner personality go bonkers. Anyhoooo….haha! I just like to leave some things to chance and spontaneity if it’s a casual care-free type of day and/or when you’re not with a large group of people. Anyways, I’m getting better and I usually explore or have my young son with me and it’s very flexible and fun! <3
Ok back to K Cafe – I’ve been raving about this place for months to my friends and family! It’s the perfect place to bring someone who loves a whimsical-garden picturesque setting. I can only imagine how amazing it would be to host a bridal shower or baby shower here. How about a meet-up with your besties!? Um yes!! Bring your mom, your daughter or nieces, bring your granny, your godmother, cousins too! Can you tell I love this cafe?! The ideas of all the precious moments I can imagine to take place here are endless!
Tips/Recommendations: If you plan to have enjoy an entree for brunch or lunch, it is worth it to make the reservation, as this place get’s busy. It’s beautiful so it’s very popular for pictures. The kitchen is not like chain-run corporate cheesecake factory. Make those special plans if you want to sit down for a brunch meal.
If your visit is just for grab-n-go drink or pastry, you are totally fine, no need to make a reservation.
My favorite drink is the Vietnamese Egg Cloud Coffee, served hot. Also they make very smooth Matcha Green Tea Lattes!
There are many more drinks and treats to be had! The pastries are super fresh and delicious. Ok now for the pictures!!! <3
