Review
More appealing than your typical Richmond District café. Corner café with a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of seating. Simple tables & chairs - plus sofas and
local artwork. Some sidewalk chairs. The usual sandwiches, soup, and salads, but the weekend chair massages are a bit unusual. They use a new, red three-group La San Marco to produce a very thin, darker crema spread over a wide-mouthed cup. Primarily pepper flavor is typical for espresso made with Peerless beans - barely better than drip coffee flavor.
