Caffe Artigiano

<2010-06-26 Sat>
Buried in the Lobby of a hotel it is easy to miss. Besides, it has
strong competition from next door (Murchie's Tea & Coffee). I debated
on whether to go in, but my quest needs to be completed.

The place is very long and narrow. A lot of "bench" sits that look
uncomfortable. I order, as usual, a espresso.

What a surprise! A very, very, very good espresso, in fact, I place it
at the level of the best in town.

But the environment? I am not so sure. It feels dark and unwelcoming.

Verdict: Your decision should be based on what you want: the best
coffee? a table to sit for a long time? Then choose
Artigiano. Better environment and choices of food or pastries? Next

Cost: 2.50 for espresso
