Review
Lively, youthful atmosphere. It fits the colored chalk creperie menu stereotype. Sponge-painted walls with countertop & stool seating facing them. Several worn indoor tables with windows that open up to sidewalk seating under an awning. The amiable owner and barista, Bassam Yousef, takes pride in his espresso-making methods, and will ask if you want yours "short" or "long." Espresso is served with a thin, medium-to-dark brown, partly congealed crema. Tobaccoy flavor with a hint of molasses-like sweetness. Pungent, but not bitter.
