I Would Like To Eat @ Marchetti's Again

This Italian food restaurant was located on "I" Street between 1st & 2nd At., in downtown Antioch. They used to offer seven courses for about $7. This was a dress up place for Antioch rivaling any North Beach restaurant in San Francisco. When the restaurant closed in the 80's it became Baby Simon's, a bar and featured live music, 7 days a week. Peggy and I used to dance our butts off til closing and then get up and go to work in the morning. We get home much earlier now HA!

Coffee making tips (1) Buy fresh (roasted) beans*; (2) Keep coffee in air tight dark place; (3) 100 % Arabica beans have a cleaner taste; (4) Don't skimp on the amount of coffee you use; (5) Keep your brewing equipment clean.
