|Busy coffee house and lunch spot on a Bernal Heights corner. Ice cream, sandwiches, smoothies, and coffee - of course. A few indoor tables and sidewalk benches outside. Baristas hereised to ask how you like your espresso (big points), but not anymore. Sometimes (as on off-hours, such as the Saturday evening barista) it's a full-bodied, extra-large-sized ashy shot with a pale crema and large bubbles. The result is generally better during prime time: a shorter shot with a pale crema and a nicely balanced flavor of pepper and tobacco. But too often it's a full cup of filter drip coffee disguised as espresso under a pale layer of even crema. In recent years, they replaced their Delco cups for only paper, nut have since returned to Shenango china.
