Espresso: I have to admit my surprise at being handed a cappuccino cup that was three-quarters full in response to my request for a single espresso. That the shot was pre-ground should probably go without saying when a place gaffes like this. Despite this, the crema was thick initially, although it dissipated rapidly. It had a mild herbal taste.
Atmosphere: This is a large shop and is filled with mismatched tables and old couches. It's really quite grungy.
Verdict: Fans of the supposedly infamous cafe creme might want to check it out.
