Review
What seems like an All Star Café under Alpenglo Tea Company branding. A couple of indoor stools at the window counter is the only seating. Espresso has barely any crema and a molasses-sweet yet mostly sour, foul flavor. Unlikely that decent coffee will ever come from here. Avoid like the plague unless you want tea. [CLOSED as of 7/12/04: replaced by Morning Brew Coffee & Tea.]
