Review
Run by the brother of the North Point Center caf� of the same name (and that's where the similarities end). Sandwiches, salad bar, and several small indoor tables. With doors that open outdoors to sidewalk caf� table seating beneath the building's shadowy brick arches. Espresso is served with a ring of light brown crema with large bubbles. Stronger and with more body than drip coffee, but not by much (appropriate, given the caf�'s Folgers Coffee Building location). With a mildly spiced, wood-like drip flavor, but with some milk chocolate tones and other tastes to give it some complexity.
