French bistro with outdoor seating along the Napa River. Inside there's a long bar among many inside tables. Using a UNIC Phoenix Twin in the kitchen, they pull slightly larger shots with a thin layer of medium brown crema - which is congealed in some spots and bare in others. It has a thinner body that's a bit watery in nature. With a flavor of light spices and touch of wood: somewhat standard for Illy. Served in Illy designer IPA cups. Their milk frothing is rather paltry - with a mix of larger bubbles and a thinner milk foam body.
