Notes: Outdoor Seating

Small cafe with some indoor and heated outdoor tables. Great outdoor alley seating on good weather days. Specializes in heavily-slathered organic food more than coffee. Curiously served by a sombre blonde Russian dedicated barista diva. Pale crema, but nice balance and smooth flavor. On the mellow side. Served full in a deep cup. Beat expectations.
