|Newest installment of a small French caf�/bakery/confectioner chain -- complete with all staff in their white "labcoats". It's true to their other locations, with high ceilings and limited seating among small tables. Using their typical three-group Faema E91 Ambassador (from Mr. Espresso), they produce an espresso with a properly concentrated volume ... dare I say even "ristretto" short at times. It has their typically swirling, darker, thicker crema. (The crema can run a little thinner at times, but that's about the only main variation.) The flavor consists of tobacco and a sharp herbal pungency that sometimes borders on bitterness, but in more recent years it's been pleasantly sweeter. This results in a flavorful cup with real boldness, and it has finally attained much of the sweetness it once lacked. And why they sometimes serve a single espresso in a large styrofoam-paper paper cup is still beyond comprehension. Their more recent use of oversized paper cups isn't much better. Their milk-based drinks aren't too bad, although the foam bubbles can run a touch large.
