The universal response I get when I suggest Rulli’s as the meeting spot for a coffee is:
1. Face lights up (or voice if it’s on the phone); and then
The person who introduced me to Rulli’s was my-then new-friend Rob Spinosa, who lived in Italy for a year. He swears it makes him feel like he’s back over there, stepping into a local cafe. I love it because it’s a perfect spot for a light meal from morning through late afternoon tea. They’ve got buttery, flaky pastries for the morning, panini’s and salads at lunch, and delicate little cookies throughout the day. It’s three storefronts wide with seating in every bay, with the cafe on one side, cookies and candies in the middle and wines and coffee beans on the other side. They also sell beautiful imported Italian candies which they’ll gift wrap and ship right there for you, which they did for me recently to the delight of some out-of-town friends.
On a sunny day, I love the outdoor seating along the sidewalk – great for people watching in downtown Larkspur. Pooches are welcome here and are frequent guests.
