Review
Since 1998, one of the many area crÍperies. But unlike the many others in the neighborhood, this one has a French theme and the staff really do speak French. A few plain indoor tables, with counters and stools facing their wooden walls covered with various Ricard posters. Using an automated grind-and-brew Astra, they serve an espresso in a styrofoam cup with a thin, pale crema that vanishes quickly. Thin body and a drip-coffee-like pepper flavor and aroma. Completely boring.
