Notes: Outdoor Seating

Very tight quarters in this café in the north Tenderloin. Its cramped space even extends to its small Mr. Espresso machine and limited food menu. Inside, there are a few small tables - typically each attended by lone men in morning. Outdoors there is bench and limited table seating. The espresso has a small amount of crema, but what's there is thick and a rich, dark brown. Peppery flavor with a distinct Dutch chocolate-like sweetness.
