Espresso di manfredi coffee. This café is only a hole in the wall, but the scent of breakfast drifts all the way out to the street, which is how I stumble upon it. Four staff are at work on the morning rush: two kitchen, one barista, and one taking orders.
There’s a bit of seating to be had in the arcade itself, where a couple of businessmen are having a pre-work meeting. From the look of their shopfront, they also serve wraps and salads for lunch.
Coffees are churned out quickly, but they’re all pre-ground. Coffee is quite hot, and too thin; there’s a sense of staleness that comes through, but it’s still drinkable.
