A true bakery that serves coffee on the side to complement their baked goods (pre-order driven and more bread than pastries, btw). Limited wooden countertop seating at the windows. They have their coffee delivered by a service, and rare is the single espresso order. A very short pour in a paper cup has no crema and is a bit cool. But the flavor is surprisingly decent: interestingly sweet and caramel-like.
