Philosophy

DeLise strives to create an unforgettable experience to each customer by offering a daily fresh selection from our dessert café that are both delise-ious and nutritious. We offer a wide array of menu from freshly ground coffee, cold beverages, sandwiches, bagels, baked goods to our specialty gourmet ice creams, frozen yogurt and sorbets.

We develop our recipes to incorporate nutritious ingredients that taste great without sacrificing the flavor. We strive to use organic and local ingredients wherever possible to support our local community and provide exceptional quality.

Everything from our freshly ground espresso to our healthy pastries, sandwiches and creamy ice cream are handmade in small batches right in the store. There are no artificial flavors, colors and preservatives in any of our products. We only value each item’s freshness and highest quality.

For our artisan ice cream, we start with milk and cream from Straus Creamery and Clover Dairy. This ensures the best tasting ice cream and frozen desserts that are created by our team of culinary experts.

We use a local purveyor of fine coffee in San Francisco from Four Barrel Coffee. We only picked the best tasting roast among their selection to suit our café’s needs. From time to time, we will rotate our selections and offer more choices to the discerning connoisseurs of coffee.
