Espresso: A nearly full cup with very pale crema was served as a "single". The shot was extremely hot and had virtually no taste whatsoever. The only real sensation in the mouth was a somewhat rubbery body. The shot was extremely unpleasant.
Atmosphere: It was hard to get a realistic feel for the place, as I was there for a concert (Vienna Teng was playing with proceeds going to Hurricane Katrina victims); I imagine that there is not typically a grand piano against the back wall, nor are there rows and rows of chairs.
Verdict: If Vienna plays there again, I'll show up, but I won't order the espresso.
