Review
In the SFMOMA, this café is half modern art angst ("take a sculpture" instead of a number) of chrome, minimalist patterns, wood, and anything black. The other half is the din of a cheesy museum cafeteria. Dozens of tables indoors and out, decent food. Served in full Tognana cups with a medium-pale, rather thin crema. Mild flavor with hints of vanilla and mild spice. Not that good, but better than you'd expect from a concessioner.
