Review
This kiosk offers convenient pick-ups of frozen yogurt, egg salad sandwiches, and packs of smokes. One of the owner's specialties are the Vietnamese sandwiches. It's definitely not the coffee. Using a two-group ECM Raffaello packed inside, they pull espresso shots with a very thin, pale crema. The pour has a huge volume, and not surprisingly it has a watery, ashy flavor. They mishandle their portafilter handles here, but the general espresso quality is too poor to notice.
