Notes: None

Renowned, family-owned neighborhood bakery that specializes in Italian-style artisan breads. Plain interior with a few indoor tables and a bench. Espresso is served with a thin, pale crema in a short paper cup. Lighter body that's somewhat watery. Its flavor leans towards ashy with a burnt edge.
