One of the best coffee in the area. Real espresso with European taste. Also the food is good including the croissants. The atmosphere is typical with small terrace and small tables. It's self serving.

Good find in a strip mall along el Camino real. Lavazza coffee might be the highlight along with very good croissants and brioches. Friendly staff completes the picture.
