|Most locals mistakenly presume this is a new (opening in 2009) corner caf� simply called "The Creamery" - based on its building signage and its product offerings. However, it is a retail operation of the Gilt Edge Creamery, a family-owned SF institution for milk, butter, eggs, and cheese since 1908. Despite the dairy operations in back, virtually no one comes in front here to order a #32 tub of sour cream: it's about breakfast, cr�pes, salads, and in particular: coffee. Even if there's a hokey neon coffee sign over the entrance door. They also offer baked goods from Sweet Sue's in Brisbane. Outside in front, they have a decorative patio with wooden tables and wicker chairs when the weather, and the less-than-optimal ambiance of being kitty-corner from the CalTrain station, complies. Inside, it is darker than a goth mortuary, with a handful of tables lined around the perimiter. Using dual two-group La Marzocco GB/5 machines, and Ritual Roaster's blends, they pull espresso shots with a mottled, medium brown crema. They serve them as doubles by default, and they have a smooth texture and a blended taste profile occasionally accentuated by a sharp pungency (at other times it is more subtle or even a bit too earthy). It's body can vary from viscous without being too syrupy (a complaint some in the biz tend to have about Ritual's own operations, though we like that sort of thing) to something thinner and more 'pedestrian'. It's a decent interpretation of Ritual beans. And while they upgraded their red ceramic World Market cups for classic brown Nuova Points, more recent shots haven't been for the better.
