Perennal award-winning bakery known for its artisan breads and pizzas, but they also feature espresso drinks. Indoors, among the sparse interior, is a single table and a bench with a coffee table. Outdoors is another bench. Frequent lines. Espresso has a dark brown but thin crema and a syrup-like body. Served slightly lukewarm with a nutmeg/spice flavor and some caramel tones.
