“A Fake Italian bar... in town”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

I saw a negative review that says "Attitude with mediocre product. "..... Everything confirmed. Those guys don't know what Caffè Espresso mean.... never been to Italy ?

The flavor was horrible, I suggest to go to Rome or Naples to improve the quality.
Nice place for people snob, hungry producers and actresses looking for work to pay the mortgage. In addition to this there is nothing special.

“Truly for fine espresso and coffee lovers!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

I'd been wanting to try the espresso here for quite a while. It was well worth the wait.

I'd say this cafe is for serious coffee and espresso lovers who are into the finer nuances of their coffee.

My espresso was thick, rich, complex and had a wonderful crema. They definitely set a new standard.

Great service, friendly staff and clean. Unlike a previous reviewer I found the restroom perfectly clean.

“some of the best coffee in the area and love the foam”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

They make foam into art and also pour a good coffee. Less strong than Peets or Starbucks - just right IMO. The honey bran muffins are out of this world.

“Coffee as Elixir of the Gods”
Reviewed April 8, 2012 via mobile

bad coffee: stale hot black crap you find anywhere
adequate brew: McDonald's... Dunkin Donuts... Etc.
real coffee (but weird smell in the store): Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
decent coffee: Starbucks
Pretty good cup o Joe: Peets

And then there's Caffe Luxxe on Montana in Santa Monica...
It's just the best brewed coffee (or latte) on the planet. That's all.
