Notes: Outdoor Seating

Modern, mostly outdoor fusion restaurant in the Rincon Center courtyard that looks like a former sushi bar. Salads, sandwiches, and espresso - as owner & chef Ken Okino is also the barista. Several outdoor café tables in the sun, and a few metal indoor tables. Mr. Espresso Rancilio machine produces a very thin layer of erratic, somewhat bubbly crema. Thinner body with a flavor of mild spice. Served in an odd-looking coffee cup set that looks like a gift to the owner that was purchased at a flea market. [CLOSED: as of 5/07.]
