|Packed and popular, despite its high ceilings and many simple, small indoor tables. Large, open air windows facing the sidewalks of Haight St., with large art pieces to match. Espresso, breakfast, and sandwiches. Espresso is served at a minimum double size with a dark brown crema that dissipates rapidly in their wide-mouthed, drip-coffee cups. Fuller body and a deep, smoky flavor. NOTE: this spot has had a few ownership changes (most recently in 2006) and is in need of a revisit - given changes in equipment and training.
