Notes: Coffee Sales

Subterranean commuter cafe in a recessed corner en route from the Montgomery St. BART station to north Montgomery. Stark, with flourescent light, but clean - like a hospital coffee shop. Soups, salads, sandwiches, and several small tables. Espresso has a thin, but rich and darker brown crema. Tarry flavor. Barista is patient with the pour. But the place stores the two Astoria portafilter handles upside-down, lying on the drip tray, during the morning rush hour.
