Review
Corner café with ample, shaded sidewalk seating and staff with Italian accents. Many indoor dining tables, brightly painted walls, local artwork, and unusual, hanging conical cloth lamps. Full lunch menu and table service. Espresso is served with a medium-to-dark brown, partly congealed crema. Classic Lavazza molasses-like sweetness with hints of vanilla, smoke, and tobacco. Served in a Lavazza-branded cup & saucer.
