Notes: Outdoor Seating

Bright, awning-shaded corner café tries hard at their coffee with unfortunately miserable results. Homemade pastries and brunch items. Airy space with large glass windows, several indoor tables, an outdoor patio, and some front bench seating. They very proudly display their commitment to Fair Trade coffee, but their espresso is ashy and bitter to the edge of being undrinkable. Served full in a Lavazza-branded IPA cup, with a thin ring of pale crema. Not heavily overextracted, yet awfully bitter with no hint of sweetness. [CLOSED and replaced by another neighborhood café by 2007.]
