Notes: Outdoor Seating

Dive diner with plenty of outdoor sidewalk seating in plastic tables and chairs along Church and Day Sts. The service here doesn't anticipate anything of what a diner might need: sugar, napkins, forks, etc. Using an older two-group CMA machine, they produce an overflowing espresso that has virtually no crema. And it tastes like where it comes from: flat and metallic. I might have had more flavor licking the machine directly.
