More upscale Mexican restaurant serves dishes indoors and on the back patio. Due to its popularlity, it has expanded into the storefronts nearby. They serve espresso with a thin layer of pale crema from their one-group Mr. Espresso machine. With a flavor of mild spices and pepper. Ironically, they reside behind Oakland's infamous Blue Bottle Coffee and yet do not use the stuff.
