Their deli menu boasts "sandwiches, pizza, salads, and espresso drinks." Yet their Brasilia machine is either out of service or in dire need of it. Canary yellow walls. Counter seating in the rear in a dank, phone-booth-like enclosure. Hot pizza ovens in front. Espresso is served with no crema and the body/consistency of drip coffee. Yet its flavor is more bitter than your typical drip. [CLOSED by 3/14/04.]
