Notes: None

Loud, hipster restaurant with boldly colored walls, bar, and various small dining tables. Downstairs lounge for happy hour and evenings. Crema has good, medium-brown color and a decent richness, but the emulsified oils coagulate a bit much. Dark coffee with a good body and an herbal/peppery flavor. [CLOSED as of 2006.]
