Review
Formerly Pick Me Up Café & Pizza (and it likely changed names over confusion with the Pick Me Up Café), this is a friendly pizza and sandwich shop with only four small inside tables near SBC Park. They prepare Java City's Primo Espresso blend with a La Pavoni grinder and a three-group Mr. Espresso machine. They post espresso drink specs for the staff on top of the machine, but it makes no difference. Espresso is brewed as a pale gusher with a sickly 4" pour time. Not surprisingly, there's no crema and it tastes of weak, bitter drip coffee.
