Review
Gourmet corner deli and café serves artisan meats and cheeses and sports an espresso bar. The rear is decorated with Italian olive oils and canned tomatoes, plus old photos of Vincenzo and namesake Angelina. Plenty of sidewalk seating under parasols. Espresso is served with a thinner, even layer of medium-to-dark brown crema. While their baristas exhibit the right techniques - such as preheating cups - they still only muster a thinner taste of plain, peppery flavor with little complexity. It's also a little ashy. They have the potential to improve.
