isto has been consistently delicious for years. Sure, they never change their menus or what's in their bakery EVER, but why mess with a good thing? They make some of the best cappuccino and tiramisu in town, have a wonderful brunch (try the cheese blintzes), and delicious Californian dinners (try the SW quesadilla).
Pros: Californian cuisine at its best--food, prices, desserts
Cons: very dry-n-stiff 90s atmosphere
