This Presidio-based, French-bistro-themed eatery (with some Mexican brunch themes thrown in) is one of the better places you can grab a meal or a drink in the park system. Simple, unassuming, and located at the intersection of the Presidio's main Transit Center hub, there's glass-enclosed patio seating under Chimay parasols with French bistro chairs outside. Inside there's seating among numerous metal-surfaced tables with a long bar and seven stools by a two-group Conti machine. They pull shots appropriately short. It comes with an even, tepid-looking medium brown crema of minimal thickness. It has a very mellow flavor of spice and some herbal elements, but manages to be plain and underwhelming overall. Milk-frothing tends to be a bit heavy-handed and dry.
