Review
Small café space with a diagonal counter, stereotypical colored chalkboard menu, and limited indoor bench and chair seating. Two sidewalk tables. Also smoothies, salads, and sandwiches. Espresso is served with a thin, medium brown crema that dissipates quickly. Bitter, ashy flavor of drip coffee with some metallic notes. Served in an IPA drip coffee cup & saucer.
