Cal French cuisine is featured at this Euro-styled café, known for its elaborate French pastries and dainty lunch offerings. Using a two-group Rio, they produce an espresso with a lighter brown, thinner crema. It has a slightly pungent flavor that carries a lot more nuttiness than you'd find in most espresso offerings anywhere.
