About Us

Our Story


Café Rosalena has been serving great food to the downtown San Jose area and Silicon Valley area since 1995.

The roots of this popular cafe had a very humble start when the founders began offering salads and sandwiches in a section of a nearby bakery.

Within a short period of time more and more people learned about the delicious sandwiches and salads. As lines grew, especially during breakfast and lunch, it was clear that additional capacity was needed to satisfy the demand. So, the founders decided to open a dedicated restaurant and called it Café Rosalena. The cafe has remained in the same location since its inception. To best serve a growing and hungry customer base, inside and outside dining areas have been added along with increased kitchen space, and an expanded menu of drinks and food.

Our popular menu also expanded into sought-after catering as our walk-in business grew; many of our loyal customers requested catering services.  

Café Rosalena is well known for our delicious Breakfast Burritos and has been recognized as having the “Best Breakfast Burrito in the Bay Area” several times. By the way, our Breakfast Burritos are great at any mealtime, not just breakfast! We offer many fillings and combinations, Chorizo, Ham, Bacon, Veggie, Chicken, to name a few; check out our menu to see all of our options and combinations. Each Breakfast Burrito is made freshly to order and includes our original-recipe creamy and spicy Orange Sauce. We also offer homemade Red and Green Sauce. All three Sauces are made in-house with all natural ingredients and are bottled for sale.

Other customer favorites on our menu include our Signature Salads – Grilled Chicken Caesar, Mexican Fiesta, Warm Chicken Asian Caesar, Thai Chicken Caesar and others; check out our menu to see our list of fresh salads.

In the Summer of 2022, the cafe will expand its dining experience with indoor and outdoor seating. The expansion includes a larger kitchen to serve our increased dining capacity and our growing catering business.

We hope to serve you soon.
