|Catering to commuters passing through the nearby Montgomery St. BART/Muni station, there is no seating and orders are "to go" only. There's also a kiosk above it at the street level - we broke it out as a separate review in Feb 2008 once they introduced a La Marzocco Linea and the staff to operate it properly. Specialty's has undergone an coffee & espresso revolution circa 2003. Previously, they served an ill espresso made with Superior Coffee, an Astoria machine, an ashy and acidic flavor, and a minimal pale crema that rapidly dissipated in a styrofoam cup for $.75. Now they serve an espresso made with Intelligentsia beans (which they now sell), a Franke super-automatic machine (not ideal, but it gives consistently decent results), and a richer, even, medium brown layer of crema. It has a bolder, tobaccoey flavor with some creaminess, and without being ashy. And while still served in a small paper cup (with Intelligentsia branding), the cup with a new $1.25 price has improved ratings across the board.
