Worship the Church of Illy. Quiet cafe with wine rack/sales near BART. Good attention to quality factors. Crema is even, somewhat pale, and varies from moderate to thin. Good brightness in the cup, with a flavor of a mild spice with some herbal elements. Quality can vary from good to very good, with noticeable variations in body and taste. (Even the cups can vary from a matching Illy demitasse set to a wide-mouthed Illy cup and mismatched saucer.) [CLOSED: Replaced by Cafe Bello in Feb. 2004.]
