Review
Newer sister to Fillmore District café. Modern wall art and many modern indoor stools & tables. Espresso is overextracted to fill a cup to the rim. Served with a moderate amount of medium-brown, thinner crema and a woody, grain-like flavor. In-house espresso is served in colorful-but-hideous porcelain cups with a silly face protruding from the side. While the material aids the flavor, the design won't help your self-respect. Almost worth going paper over.
