Review
Dumpy Internet café in a shady part of downtown - at the Tenderloin border across the Hilton. No one dares sit outside. Most of their indoor seating is in front of rows of computers. Cloudy fish tank of goldfish looks more appetizing than the food. They'll ask if you want your espresso "for here," but then they massacre it. Espresso is served way overextracted, with a thin, whitish-pale crema and a spoon sticking out of the overflowing cup. Weak drip coffee taste and body. A complete waste of good beans and equipment.
