This is the little sister café to the one on Irving St. & 9th Ave. It is popular with the Inner Sunset locals for the roasts they sell directly — in addition to the (unfortunately paper) cups they serve. This space has only three small indoor tables and three small sidewalk tables. Using a two-group La Spaziale, they pull an espresso shot with a thin, medium brown crema with some occasionally large bubbles in it. Flavorwise, it’s mostly pungent and herbal with an unfortunate burnt edge of some ash.

It’s a decent espresso for the neighborhood — though I like the shots pulled at their sister café better.
