Manhattan-themed deli/lunch spot. Dark interior with cherry wood chairs and window counter stools. It shares a series of outdoor tables along the pedestrian-only Leidesdorff St. with the burger joint next door. Espresso is served with a moderately thin, light brown crema that's up to the challenge of coating its surface in what's essentially a paper soft drink cup. Mellow, meek, yet more complex flavor of mild spices. What it lacks in robustness is made up by subtlety.
