Sandwich bar & grill at the top floor of the Crocker Galleria. With salad bar and a two-group La Spaziale. Multi-colored wood floors and counters. Several tables and some indoor window counter seating facing the mall courtyard. Inattentive barista draws an espresso with a thin ring of dark brown crema. Burnt/tobacco flavor and a touch sour, but it at least has some depth.
