A lone shop in suburbia, on a corner where buses frequently rumble past. Menu is ok, not particularly interesting, but no ham n cheese sandwich joint either. Fairly popular and buzzing on weekends. Food and drink good but atmosphere is hard to do... it is a lot of concrete and steel, and not much buffering us from road traffic.
I don't quite get this place. It's got all the ingredients - good coffee, pleasant location, informed urban clientele - but it's not all gelled together on any of my visits. As I said good coffee, well-made - as good a latte as I've had. My suspicion is that the issue is Alberto. Swearing away in the Italian in the kitchen; grumbling around the tables. It's not the swearing that's the issue - it's the disdain he has for his customers. I never feel quite comfortable.
