|This Theater District restaurant seems to have actually improved over the years, even though it's focus has been more at the "value" end of restaurant positioning. The space is a bit awkward - an odd main dining area with a few dozen small tables plus rather bunker-like seating in the back that's more private (and has air conditioning on those rare warm SF days). They use a two-group Elektra machine at the bar. And while the staff seems aware of their coffee preparation suppliers, they are clearly unwilling to endorse it. While that reflects poorly on the restaurant, that reflects well on the staff - who will almost reluctantly serve you a rather large shot with an rough, medium brown crema with some larger bubbles and a white heat spot at the pour. It may not be served to the rim of the nameless ceramic demitasses they use here, but the pour size does thin out the body and flavor significantly. Flavorwise, it is a muted combination of some herbal pungency, mild spice, and wood. The staff claimed they use Mr. Espresso, who in turn say they've never done business with them. So your guess as to who supplies their coffee is as good as ours.
