There are two reasons to come to this small cafe. You want strong coffee, or your internet at home just went out (again) and you really have to get sh*t done. This quiet spot in the Inner Sunset serves affogatos and cafe bomboms (two espresso shots over condensed milk) in a dark, cave-like space with low ceilings. The only downside to working here is that tables are hard to come by and small, especially the mini round tables by the bar area.
