Review
Cramped corner café in the former Marina Tavern. Decorated with worn kitchen cabinets, sofas, and Internet access in the small seating area. Extremely rude staff who can't be bothered while they surf the Internet. Espresso is served in an overfilled paper cup without any real crema. Ashy, burnt taste. From North Bay Coffee, but here it tastes a lot like the worst of ABC (America's Best Coffee). Even so, their bad espresso is nothing compared to their awful staff.
