Review
Croissants, sandwiches, and frozen yogurt are served at this confusing corner caf´┐Ż near Union Square. Some indoor window counter seating, but the main attraction is the outdoor sidewalk tables on its busy street corner. Espresso is served with a partially congealed, medium brown crema in a cup that's filled to capacity. Thinner body without any overpowering flavor - a mostly mellow flavor of clove and tobacco. Recently introduced Tully's Coffee as their bean supplier.
