Review
A café and a true bar - popular for gin drinks and martinis - at the outskirts of The Castro, The Mission, and Lower Haight. Spacious - with stools, modern tables, old airline travel bags. Emphasis is Art Deco with high, decorated tin ceiling. Several sidewalk cafe tables. Classic jazz music. Old "FaemaTronic" delivers a layer of medium brown crema that covers wide-rimmed coffee cup. A nutmeg/spice-like flavor with some caramel tones. Served in a mismatch of Rego and Delco china.
