Notes: Outdoor Seating

Chain bagel outlet with a cafe feel: big color photographs, outdoor cafe tables, etc. Limited indoor seating. Staff has spotty English skills, making any communication of espresso preferences difficult. Espresso has a sweet-smelling aroma and a decent amount of pale, even crema. Syrup-like, sweet flavor with peppery notes and no bitterness. A lot of unmet potential.
