|Formerly Splendido, and a variety of other nameless restaurants that have once resided in this location, this is the latest incarnation of the decent food/odd location/often empty restaurant formula. A large space with both extensive indoor and outdoor (Embarcadero Center patio) seating, they recently replaced their espresso machine with a giant, single-group Saeco in the kitchen. Now instead of producing espresso shots from Caff� Roma beans (as still advertised on their dessert menus), they've switched to Lavazza pods. The resulting shot has a mottled light brown crema that's thin on thickness and even thinner on consistency. The shot also doesn't have too much of a flavor beyond boring drip coffee mild pepper and spices. Served in Fortessa Vitraluxe cups. Sometimes it can have more body and flavor, but it's surprisingly erratic for coffee pods.
