Review
Corner café with several indoor tables, faux brick walls, and additional seating in a sun room/patio out front. Limited outdoor seating. Also sandwiches, salads, and crepes - going with the French theme as painted on their walls and table tops. They take pride in roasting their own coffee. Their espresso is served to the rim of an old Illy logo Walküre cup, with excess spilling over the sides. Medium brown crema of decent thickness. But the bitter and metallic edge to the flavor overshadows anything good about their espresso.
