Somewhat upscale restaurant in a quiet neighborhood that can sometimes get loud. Three small dining levels. Espresso can vary from barely any crema to an adequately thick layer of medium-to-dark brown, thin foam. While the beans are ground to order, the coffee could probably be fresher. A weak-bodied cup (filled too high, so it's a bit watery) with an herbal, thyme-like flavor that has more recently run astringent. The lemon rind served on the side is tell-tale. And yet they've raised the price 75� since 2003. Lose the lemon rind; learn how to pull a more potent shot with heft
