Doomed ocean liner-themed caf´┐Ż at the Commodore Hotel. Small diner-like counter with tiny booths has a real throwback feel with vintage jazz music and posters of European luxury ship travel. Espresso is served from an unlabelled, Italian-made, single group machine into an oversized latte bowl (?!). They manage to keep a slight, light crema layer over this fish bowl of an demitasse. Drip coffee flavor of wood and spice, slightly burnt. Cash only.
