Small, clean cafe with a handful of tables indoors and out (including a parasol). Sponge-painted walls bearing proverbs and photography. Espresso is served with a streaky, pale, thick crema in a designer Illy cup. Flavor is mellow and subdued, dominated by a mild spice. Gritty at the bottom of the cup.
