Hip music, playful spot lighting, and a sparse-yet-plush interior reminiscient of an upscale Thai restaurant. Staff isn't too savvy about coffee, and the menu lists "espresso shot" as if it were an addition rather than a standalone beverage. Served with a good amount of pale-ish crema. Tobaccoy flavor that's also slightly ashy.
