“My oh my that was even better than I hoped!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Spotted Ponganes when they were closed, by my coffee-senses started to tingle. Came back the next day for an espresso shot (a double, actually). I figure that if you can pull a great shot of espresso, you can figure out the milk

I was right. Pitch perfect shot: rich crema on top, sweet, winey finish. On day two, they remembered my order. On day three, had the cappuccino. Perfect. May extend my stay just for more of this!
