Notes: Outdoor Seating

Small, very French bistro has several indoor metal tables and limited outdoor seating. They advertise French food and espresso on the entryway. Using a single-group, chrome Elektra machine, they produce an espresso that mostly lives up to their investments in an Illy system. They use Illy beans to produce a medium-light brown crema of modest thickness. Classic woody Illy flavor, served in Illy logo IPA cups.
