About Us

Cafe Pro Bono
welcomes you!

'La Famiglia...'

As many of you know, I've had a lifelong passion for unique food and 'friendly' fine dining. After living in Germany for many years working and absorbing the culture and flavors of Europe, I decided to come to the United States... and bring my knowledge, love, and passion for food with me. Once arriving in the Bay Area, I then spent over a decade managing restaurants in San Francisco, but my ultimate dream was to have my own where I could bring my culinary vision to life! 

In 2003, this dream came true when I purchased Cafe Pro Bono. It's been my mission and my pleasure to have created a warm and welcoming dining experience serving delicious, innovative food... a place where so many come to relax, gather with friends - and make new ones!

It's my honor to be your host - and I, and the entire staff of Cafe Pro Bono sincerely thank you for including us in your lives!

I do appreciate you! Buon Appetito! 

Cafe Pro Bono Owner and your host,

Akif Aydin

The Bar

Cafe Pro Bono's full bar offers specialty cocktails, our modern take on classic cocktails, plus local, craft and imported beers (including some on tap). We also offer over 300 wines, domestic and imported, with our owner and 'Sommelier' Akif Aydin (who personally selects every wine in our collection) on hand to assist guests in finding the exact wine to complement their dining experience.
