Oops! This place is now a weird "Tea Salon" called Crown and Crumpet. It specializes in full tea service with little cookies and stuff. They still do Blue Bottle though, so if you're hanging out in Japantown and need an espresso, its passable for a quick spro. And kind of amusing to have it made by a British guy in a flowered apron.
I watched the barista make my shot of Blue Bottle using great care, with a bottomless portafilter on a La Marzocco. It was good, and the cafe is inside a building full of very interesting businesses. Best place to grab a spro' in Japantown for sure. By the number of laptops, I would assume free wifi.
