Café Attila: Good Eating in San Ramon

In the last month or so, I read a review of the relatively-new Café Attila in San Ramon. I was intrigued to read that the Café had, for several years, been a pastry shop and had relocated to a larger area. They still are creating their magnificent pastries but, in their new location in San Ramon Square, are also serving a Bistro lunch.

Today, Joanne and I gave Café Attila a try.

It's in a strip mall along a busy commercial street. Parking is easy and our lunch was wonderful.

The lunch menu is small but very tempting. Meals are priced between $9 and $15.

Joanne had the Pork Tenderloin sandwich. Her sandwich was served with housemade cole slaw.

My choice was the Roasted Chicken Gougère...a serving of three cream puffs filled with Chicken Salad.

Both of our meals were absolute perfection.

On my next visit, I plan to try the Pulled Pork with Cornbread and Cole Slaw. I saw this dish and the half Roast Chicken being served at other tables and both looked and smelled amazing. The person who ordered the Roast Chicken took at least half of it home for another meal...servings are very generous.

Because the dessert pastries are so tempting, we decided to share two:

A berry tart

and a Raspberry Chocolate Cake creation.

We loved our entire meal.

A sign in the window says they are getting an alcohol license. Maybe dinner service will follow? If not, Café Attila is worth a trip for lunch, and, of course breakfast and dessert pastries. They are closed Sunday and Monday.
