Edgy cafe caters to pierced, tattooed, and dyed clientele. Serve coffee, beer, and lunch. High ceilings, several tables, window-facing counterspace, worn sofas, and Internet access. Occasional jazz acts. Espresso ras a thin but darker brown crema. Great aroma. Smooth, full-bodied flavor suggests a mixture of baker's chocolate and spice. Served in a Caff� Roma cup and mismatched saucer.
