Yes, it really is both a video rental store and espresso bar. Small storefront - named for the former grocer at its location - with no seating, an outside bench, and an espresso bar shared with the video checkout. Quirky store serves very hot espresso with a good-looking crema that thins quickly in a paper cup. Nutty flavor with smoky notes. Open until 11pm on Fri & Sat.
