I have to preface this review with the full disclosure that I am an espresso snob and when I review a cafe I am looking for a high quality shot of espresso (not "espresso-based" drinks). This is a cute little cafe on Northwood Road that appears to be in a revitalization mode. Cafe had a great atmosphere and I was excited when I saw that they had Intelligentsia espresso. They were pulling shots of Black Cat which can be very tricky but also excellent. The barista was very helpful and engaged. I had asked for a ristretto shot and not sure that was fully understood by the barista. The shot that I did get was ok but had a number of issues (too large a shot - should have been closer to 1 oz and was likely close to 3 oz, crema was very light and the temperature was too hot indicating that the water had passed through the grinds too quickly). Flavor was just ok. Ultimately, this was a disappointment but I would say that the cafe has promise.
