Notes: Outdoor Seating

Croissants, sandwiches, and frozen yogurt are served at this confusing corner café near Union Square. Some indoor window counter seating, but the main attraction is the outdoor sidewalk tables on its busy street corner. Espresso is served with a partially congealed, medium brown crema in a cup that's filled to capacity. Thinner body without any overpowering flavor - a mostly mellow flavor of clove and tobacco. Recently introduced Tully's Coffee as their bean supplier.
