Tazzaria Visalia Reviews
try the 'fog lifter' coffee Oct 19, 2016
For the longest time, I have wanted to write a review for our favorite coffee house in my area -- Tazzaria. "Tazza" meaning Cup in Italian, and "Ria" Place. "The place of the cup."
Indeed, this coffee shop lives up to its name! It is THE place for anyone who is a coffee-lover. Personally, I like the flavor called "Fog Lifter" the most. Whether prepared in ice-cold or steaming hot, it simply is glorious!
Tazzaria owned by a (married) couple who are passionate about their craft and business; one can see it right away even from the shop's design, decors and choices of furniture. A cozy atmosphere.
The employees are accommodating, dedicated, and treat their customers like neighbors and friends.
Guests are quickly enticed to pinpoint a cake or a scone to go with their beverage from the enclosed glass counter. And cakes are as good as how they look!
This coffee shop is seldom empty, but we never had a problem finding a spot. They also have tables outside for those who prefer the outdoor "coffeeing."
Aside from coffee and teas, they also offer gourmet meals. At one time we tried their pasta. A little bit pricey for a pasta meal, but it tasted fresh and flavorful.
They also offer some cocktail drinks such as "caipirinha."
We are one of their loyal customers, so we go back now and then!
Two items may become an issue to most people, though -- the insufficient parking space and do not have their own restroom. Guests have to walk all the way back of the building to use the (common) restroom.

A whole lot more than a Coffee Shop! Jun 13, 2009
Opened about five years ago along our wonderful Main Street here in Visalia, this is no normal coffee shop. Oh, they offer seven or eight fresh roasted coffees, along with home-made muffins, bear claws, and other assorted goodies every morning.
But that’s just the beginning. They have added a full kitchen and offer fresh breakfasts, lunches and dinners. And recently they have added a “some assembly required” menu with ready to cook, seasoned, stuffed pork chops or a prepared flank steak that’s about a 10-minute sauté away from being ready for dinner.
They believe in unique and different lunches and their catering business offers items that you will not find anywhere else. Their best feature is that they have maintained a lower price than most of the others in the area. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
