Notes: Outdoor Seating

Amusing ice cream shop/candy store with a serious attempt at coffee that partially succeeds. Cavernous space decorated with toys, candy, and a jukebox. Several cafe tables with some sidewalk seating. Espresso is a little overextracted: minimal crema and thinner body. Tobaccoy flavor. Could do far better with what they have.
