AKA "Sam [sic]Coffee & Deli," this tight, dingy caf´┐Ż has a sparse interior of three tables and a bench. Two small sidewalk tables. Brass eagle-topped La Pavoni machine makes for a nice decoration. Only if their espresso was tasteful too. It's served with a thin, medium brown crema with some large bubbles at the cup's edge. Bitter flavor also has something of a sour, under-temperature edge. Overpriced even if they put a better effort into their espresso quality.
