|Famed China Beach weekend brunch spot with Bay Bridge views and horribly long waits. A lot of window seating facing The Embarcadero. They serve Thanksgiving Coffee for drip and Caff� Roma ESP blend for espresso. Espresso costs $1.75 tableside and $1.00 at the take-out counter. Barista brews straight into the cup from a two-group La Carimali, but they often neglect it for a while after brewing. Thick layer of medium bodied crema, with a medium-dark brown color. Medium body. Lacks a flavor punch: slight herbal flavor with some smoke. Espresso has a lot of unmet potential.
