Review
Quiet, low-key, no-frills corner espresso bar is great for readers. One wall is covered with full bookcases. A dozen indoor tables and minimal sidewalk seating. They serve Lavazza Super Crema (and Capricorn for drip). Espresso has dark, congealed crema with small bubbles. Dark, rich coffee - classic deep roast effects - with smooth, turpeny (balsamic?) flavor and mild spice notes. Some grounds at the bottom of the cup.
