Caffè macchiato: the test for a coffee shop.
The flavor was excellent. Well-rounded (good pull) and not burnt (good roast) espresso. Even this quicky drink had a nice rosetta in the foam. The only possible "problem" might be more a variation. This felt like a wet macchiato / piccolo latte / whatever. However, the whole drink was so smooth that perhaps the espresso was creamy enough to blend with the foam.
They were busily painting, so I'm not going to judge the comfort or decor. Was a great place for a chat over coffee even in turmoil.
