Review
Stereotypical colored-chalk-on-blackboard menu city creperie. Busy, loud, laquered and gouged tables, some outdoor seating. Like many Capricorn Coffee customers, they use a custom blend. However, the inattentive barista let the faulty machine spew and sputter pale, watery liquid everywhere instead of cutting off the bad part of the pour. Virtually no crema and little body. Surprisingly, the espresso doesn't have a bad flavor. But then it doesn't have any flavor!
