Dive cafe in a dive part of town. Like many of the Asian American-operated coffeeshops in the area, just smaller (select counterspace seating only) and no bakery. Barista with small Futurema/E81 machine and questionable beans takes almost a minute for one espresso, and it is surprisingly sweet and tasteful. Beats expectations you get from curbside appearances. ABC Coffee is now ABC Coffee & Pasta, so one can only imagine that they'll be expanding into cell phones next year.
