Very generic-looking cafe that's just this side of a Dunkin' Donuts. Very few indoor cafe tables and lots of mirrors (one at the short counter). Schizophrenic: frozen yogurt, espresso, salads, Mexican food. Barista clearly isn't knowledgeable about the coffee, and it shows in the cup. Very little crema that dissipates quickly. Light body, somewhat thin, and taste bordering the medicinal/light spice. A La Cimbali M30 Dosatron and good coffee seriously underperforming. [CLOSED: Replaced by L'Eataliano by 2009.]
