Don't be fooled by the elegant decor - including an enclosed patio with fireplace - and the two-group Elektra machine. This place actually serves San Francisco Bay Coffee from Costco as their espresso blend. This seafood restaurant stocks a full bar, and from it produces an espresso with a thin and mottled layer of medium brown crema. It has a thin, woody flavor, and is served in an Illy logo IPA cup accompanied by a mismatched Tuxton saucer. Schizophrenic.
